A Leader in Small Modular Reactor Innovation
NuScale Power is developing a new modular light water reactor to supply reliable and abundant carbon-free nuclear energy. Our groundbreaking small modular reactor (SMR) design features a fully fabricated NuScale Power Module™ capable of generating 77 megawatts of electricity (MWe) using a safer, smaller, scalable version of pressurized water reactor technology.
NuScale’s SMR technology performs as clean as wind and solar, and cleaner than any fossil fuel. It is ideally suited across diverse platforms including baseload electricity, load-following support for renewables, very high-reliability micro-grids, and process heat or steam for district heating, desalination, and other industrial uses. Adaptable to changing consumer demand and resilient to changing weather conditions, NuScale SMRs are the perfect companion to renewables that face intermittent generation capability.
The NuScale reference power plant can house up to 12 NuScale Power Modules™ for a total facility output of 924 megawatts of electricity (MWe). NuScale also offers smaller power plant solutions in 4-module and 6-module sizes with outputs of 308 MWe (gross) and 462 MWe (gross), respectively. The multi-module NuScale plant design is scalable, allowing customers to incrementally increase facility output to match demand. These flexible power plant solutions provide significant opportunities to reduce the financial commitments and overall production costs normally associated with giga-watt size nuclear facilities, including the amount of required staff because of the unparalleled safety features of the NuScale Power Module.
At NuScale, our commitment to safety is second to none. Smarter, more cost-effective, and simplified, our advanced SMR design eliminates two-thirds of previously required safety systems and components found in today’s large reactors. This Triple Crown For Nuclear Plant Safety™ design safely shuts down and self-cools, indefinitely with no operator action, no AC or DC power, and no additional water. This is a first for commercial nuclear power.
At NuScale, we’re improving the quality of life for people everywhere by providing clean, abundant, and reliable carbon-free nuclear energy. Each and every day, we’re changing the power that changes the world. Won’t you join us?
