Holtec Advances Project Delivery Plan for SMR-160 in Czech Republic

We are pleased to announce that Holtec concluded a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) with Škoda Praha and Hyundai Engineering and Construction (HDEC) on October 11th to advance the planning for construction of SMR-160s in the Czech Republic.

CEOs of Holtec International and Hyundai Engineering & Construction Co., Ltd. Sign a Far-Reaching Accord to Accelerate the Completion of the SMR-160  Advanced Reactor Program and Collaborate in Diverse Clean Energy Technologies 

We are pleased to announce that Holtec International and Hyundai Engineering & Construction Co., Ltd. (Hyundai E&C) held a signing ceremony on October 18 at Holtec’s Technology Campus in Camden, NJ to mark the launching of an accelerated program to complete the balance of plant design of the remaining systems and structures for the SMR-160 advanced small modular reactor.


SMR-160 at Age 10

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.

2019 in Review

We bid a fond goodbye to 2019 which will stand out in our company’s annals as a watershed year when we began the implementation of several new ambitious initiatives that will shape our endeavors for decades to come.

The Holtec Advisory Council Meeting on SMR-160 Marked by Several Major Milestone Developments
