Safe, Secure, Reliable, Flexible, and Economical Clean Energy to Support the World’s Energy Needs
Safe and Secure
Designed to provide an unfailingly safe and secure source of clean energy from nuclear fission, SMR-160 incorporates passive features of its operation to ensure utmost safety and reliability. All safety systems are within containment making them secure from external threats.
Economical and Efficient
Major features of SMR-160 include its small footprint (4.5 acres), minuscule site boundary dose, large inventory of coolant in the reactor vessel and its modularity – allowing project owners the freedom to effectively build the number of units to meet current and future demand.
Reliable and Environment-Friendly
One major advantage of the SMR-160 includes its cutting-edge capability to operate using a standard cooling water system, or an air cooling system in lieu of the large quantity of plant service cooling water. With the flexibility to use air cooled condensers, SMR-160 can be deployed in the most arid regions of the world.
