Small Modular Reactors

11 Jan 2018

London Materials Society Lecture

Bryan Borradaile

 - At ≤300 MWe, SMRs can provide flexible energy sources for multiple purposes at reduced financial risk

 - Multiple modules can be licensed as a single plant

 - Allow for sequenced construction and more acceptable cash flow

 - Have strong potential for enhanced safety.

 - Can be sited in non-conventional locations and meet non-conventional missions

 - Provide classic nuclear power benefits of low-fuel costs without significant carbon emissions

 - Development and qualification of advanced structural materials are critical to the design and deployment of the advanced nuclear reactor systems.

 - Structural materials must perform over design lifetimes for pressure boundaries, reactor internals, and heat transfer components.

 - Standard testing & NDE methods, irradiation effects.
