The Benefits of NuScale's Technology
The flexibility of our modular design goes beyond delivering always-on base load, with the ability to provide clean water, heat, and more to meet the biggest human needs across the globe. With a smarter and simplified design, we are able to eliminate two-thirds of internal and essential staff, reducing production costs. The small and scalable nature of our plants fits more spaces and budgets while still meeting expanding needs. Also, there is a predictable long-term cost and base load dependability that cannot be matched by any fuel or renewable. These benefits make our technology best suited to improve the quality of life for all humankind.
The NuScale Power Module™ design is comprised of an integrated reactor vessel, steam generator, and containment vessel in a single cylindrical module.
Smallest Light-Water Reactor
The small size of the completed module permits component shipment via conventional large object transport such as truck, rail, and barge.
The NuScale Power Module’s cost per kWh is competitive with other sources of base load electricity generation, and less than the cost per kWh of large nuclear units.
