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 are pleased to announce that Kiewit Power Constructors Co. of Omaha, Nebraska, a national leader in cost-competitive construction of combined cycle power plants, has joined Team Holtec as the latest member of a band of illustrious companies dedicated to the renaissance of nuclear energy.
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.
Holtec and Framatome have entered into an agreement to enable completion of all necessary engineering to fuel the SMR-160 with Framatome’s commercially available and well-proven 17 x 17 GAIA fuel assembly.
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.
We are pleased to announce that Holtec International and NAEK Energoatom, Ukraine’s national nuclear operator, have signed a Memorandum-of-Understanding that envisages Ukraine to adopt the SMR-160 technology to meet its projected needs for clean power in the latter half of the next decade.
Officials of the Mitsubishi Electric Co., their US subsidiary Mitsubishi Electric Power Products, Inc. and Holtec held strategic alliance discussions at the Holtec Technology Campus in Camden, New Jersey to reinforce their resolve to forge ahead with renewed vigor to complete the licensing of SMR-160 and to broaden their cooperation.
We are pleased to announce that our Memorandum of Understanding entered over a year ago evolved into an agreement which formalizes the design authority role of Mitsubishi Electric Corporation and its U.S. subsidiary, Mitsubishi Electric Power Products Inc. over instrumentation and control systems for the SMR-160.
We are pleased to announce that Holtec has partnered with the US subsidiary of Mitsubishi Electric Corporation – Mitsubishi Electric Power Products Inc. – to develop the instrumentation and control solution for the SMR-160.
We are pleased to announce that Holtec’s engineers have succeeded in designing SMR-160 into a “walk-away” safe nuclear power plant, which means that if a calamity were to strike, the plant will passively switch to and remain in a safe shutdown and cooled configuration for an unlimited period.
Holtec International is pleased to announce that on July 1, the Company will submit its request for financial support to the Department of Energy pursuant to the Funding Opportunity Announcement #DE-FOA-0000800 dated March 11, 2013.
We are pleased to announce that URS Nuclear, a unit of URS Corporation’s Energy & Construction Division, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Holtec International that gives URS an important role in the development of Holtec’s small modular reactor.
