Growing Interest in Holtec’s Innovative SMR-160 Reactor From Nations Seeking to Decarbonize Their Energy Generation
We are pleased to observe that the mounting demand for clean and reliable base load energy generation is fueling strong interest from many countries that view our inherently safe and economically viable SMR-160 small modular reactor (SMR) as the solution for reducing their carbon footprint.
Holtec International’s SMR, LLC has successfully completed Phase 1 of the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) “Pre-Licensing Review of a Vendor’s Reactor Design” for its small modular reactor design, the SMR‑160.
We mark the tenth anniversary of the birth of our SMR-160 small modular reactor this month buoyed by the thought that its promise to render nuclear energy generation as benign as solar and wind – its kindred carbon free technologies – has been realized in full measure.
First Holtec-Designed and Built Single-Failure-Proof HI-TRAN 300 Heavy Load Transporter Enters Service
We are pleased to announce that the first HI-TRAN 300, a vertical heavy load hauler designed by Holtec’s Nuclear Power Division (NPD) to serve as the single-failure-proof workhorse for hauling loaded Holtec dry spent fuel storage system components and for executing inter-cask canister transfer, has been successfully manufactured and factory tested by the Company’s Advanced Manufacturing Division in Camden, New Jersey.
Holtec, Energoatom and SSTC enter into a Trilateral Consortium Partnership to advance the SMR-160 nuclear reactor for deployment across Ukraine
Ukraine’s national nuclear operator NAEK Energoatom, the nation’s State Scientific and Technology Center, and Holtec International ratified the creation of a consortium partnership that binds the three companies into a cooperative undertaking to chaperone the deployment of the SMR-160 small modular reactors in the country.
The winter meeting of the Holtec Advisory Council for SMR-160 was attended by invited industry experts from several leading organizations, including Bruce Power, Energoatom (Ukraine), Entergy, Exelon Generation, Southern, Talen Energy, NEI, SNC-Lavalin, Mitsubishi Electric, and several major suppliers which constituted a robust review team encompassing virtually all aspects of the SMR-160 program.
