Our Technology Simplifies Design, Enhances Operability, and Reduces Risks

NuScale’s flexible design is redefining nuclear. Our Small Modular Reactor (SMR) is premised on well-established nuclear technology principles with a focus on integration of components, simplification or elimination of systems, and use of passive safety features. This results in a highly reliable operation underpinned by an extremely strong safety case and unparalleled asset protection, making it suitable to be sited at locations closer to where electricity or process heat are needed, providing the added benefit of being resilient during storms and outages. With our technology, we can improve the quality of life for all humankind.
