Small Modular Reactors (SMR)

Small Modular Reactors (SMR)
Molten salt reactors are radically different from the classical solid fuel reactors build since the 1950s. This webinar will include presentations from two companies: Rolls Royce SMR and GE Hitachi Nuclear Energy (GEH).

IAEA have established Small Modular Reactor (SMR) regulators Forum based on an increased interest with Nuclear Business. Small and medium-sized or modular reactors are an option to fulfil the need for flexible power generation for a wider range of users and applications. Small modular reactors, deployable either as single or multi-module plant, offer the possibility to combine nuclear with alternative energy sources, including renewables. SMRs are ideal technology to help in decarbonization and energy security goals.

This webinar will include presentations from two companies: Rolls Royce SMR and GE Hitachi Nuclear Energy (GEH).

Rolls-Royce SMR uses established nuclear technology and know-how, to offer a sustainable, low cost, repeatable and scalable product, that can be rolled out around the world. Rolls Royce SMR was the first vendor to apply for a Generic Design Assessmen (GDA) of an SMR design. The 470 MWe pressurized water reactor design was accepted for review in March 2022 with Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) asking the ONR and EA to begin the process. Rolls Royce SMR will present their reactor and possible applications during the webinar.

GE Hitachi Nuclear Energy (GEH) is a world-leading provider of advanced reactors, fuel and nuclear services. GEH is an alliance created by GE and Hitachi to serve the global nuclear industry. The alliance combines GE’s design expertise and history delivering reactors, fuels and services globally with Hitachi’s proven experience in advanced modular construction to offer customers around the world the technological leadership required to effectively enhance reactor performance, power output and safety. GE Hitachi Nuclear Energy (GEH) has submitted a Generic Design Assessment (GDA) entry application for its BWRX-300 small modular reactor (SMR) to the UK Department for Business, Energy, and Industrial Strategy (BEIS). GE Hitachi will present their reactor and possible applications during the webinar.

Sweden already has:

  • regulatory guidelines that only needs a modest update for the licensing process
  • a wide and deep competence and long experience in PWR and BWR technology
  • the safety analysis will not differ that much from the safety analysis we already perform for our existing PWRs and BWRs.
