"The NuScale Small Modular Reactor"
Abstract:
NuScale Power, based in Oregon and backed by Fluor Corporation as majority owner, has designed an extraordinarily safe Integral Pressurized Water Reactor (IPWR) based on light water reactor technology proven in operation for over 70 years. NuScale intends to commercialize power plants that are modular and scalable in 50 MWe (gross) increments. Using simplified, passive technology, NuScale’s design reduces complexity, improves safety, enhances operability, and reduces risks. This presentation will cover interesting aspects of NuScale's novel design, and discuss how this technology can be applied to help solve global energy demand problems.
