Spring 2019

Though the shorter, darker days of winter can naturally be a time for slowing down, NuScale powered on. We’re moving into spring with the seeds of early success for 2019 with some technological breakthroughs, exciting partnerships, and progress on current projects to set us up for another year of incredible growth as pioneers in the nuclear industry.

In this issue of the NUCLEUS Newsletter, we have exciting updates to share. On the technology front, we unveiled the first application of field programmable gate array technology for real time safety display and monitoring in the U.S. commercial nuclear industry with our partners at Ultra Electronics Energy. Learn more in our Technology Update section about how we’ve reimagined nuclear instrumentation and control systems to revolutionize commercial nuclear across the globe.

In our Partnership Spotlight, read the latest about NuScale’s new global relationship with Bruce Power in Canada and with the Jordan Atomic Energy Commission. Each will allow NuScale to showcase the unique capabilities, cost benefits, and flexibility of our game-changing climate-smart small modular reactor (SMR) technology for Canada and Jordan, as well as demonstrate the increasing interest in NuScale’s groundbreaking nuclear technology around the world.

NuScale’s first customer, the Utah Associated Municipal Power Systems (UAMPS), is making incredible progress towards powering the next generation of nuclear in the U.S. Its Carbon Free Power Project is gaining a lot of attention with lawmakers in the western states region for the high-quality jobs and economic development that NuScale’s 12-module SMR plant will bring. UAMPS also entered into a new agreement with the Department of Energy (DOE) and Battelle Energy Alliance to advance a unique opportunity for conducting nuclear energy research through the DOE’s Joint Use Modular Plant Program and contribute to SMR commercialization in the U.S.

We are proud to share these and other highlights with you in this issue of NuScale Power’s NUCLEUS Newsletter. Thank you for joining NuScale on this remarkable journey as we work together to change the power that changes the world.
