Company Description:

NuScale Power, LLC is developing a new kind of nuclear plant; a safer, smaller, scalable version of pressurized water reactor technology, designed with natural safety features; a technology initially developed and tested at Oregon State University. Fluor Corporation (NYSE: FLR), a global engineering, procurement, and construction company with a 60-year history in commercial nuclear power, is the majority investor in NuScale. As the sole winner of the second round of the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) competitively bid, cost-sharing program to develop nuclear small modular reactor (SMR) technology, NuScale is the only SMR developer currently receiving DOE financial support.

NuScale's design offers the benefits of carbon-free nuclear power and reduces the financial commitments and risks associated with the cost of installing large capacity. A nuclear power plant using NuScale's technology is comprised of individual NuScale Power Modules™, each producing 50 megawatts of electricity (gross) with its own factoy-built combined containment vessel and reactor vessel, and its own packaged turbine-generator set. A power plant can include as many as 12 NuScale Power Modules to produce as much as 600 MWe, gross (570 net, nominal, after house loads). The reactor coolant system uses simple properties of physics: convection, conduction and gravity, to drive the flow of coolant in the reactor. In the case of a loss of all off-site power to the plant, the NuScale Power Module shuts itself down and self-cools for an unlimited period of time, with no operator action required, no need for additional water, and no AC nor DC power. NuScale power plants are scalable - additional modules are added ascustomer demand for electricity increases. NuScale's technology also is ideally suited to supply energy for district heating, desalination, and other applications.

NuScale is headquartered in Portland, Oregon and has offices in Corvallis, OR; Rockville, MD; Charlotte, NC; and Richland, WA. 

Product Information:
The NuScale SMR is an advanced light-water reactor wherein each NuScale Power Module is a self-contained unit that operates independently within a multi-module configuration. Up to 12 modules are monitored and operated from a single control room. The reactor measures 65 feet tall x 9 feet in diameter. It sits within a containment vessel, which operate inside a water-filled pool that is built below grade.
