At the heart of the UK SMR concept lies the innovative repackaging of reliable and proven technology, allowing off-site modular construction using standard components and advanced manufacturing techniques.
Our world needs more low-carbon power than ever. So we’re leading a UK consortium to develop an affordable power plant that generates electricity using a small modular reactor – an intelligent way to meet our future energy needs.
One UK SMR power station will produce 440MWe of electricity.
Enough power to:
Supply a city the size of Leeds
Light 40,000,000 bulbs
Charge 88,000,000 smartphones
Charge 62,857 electric cars
Run 8,000,000 large TVs
Built in one location, the elements of an SMR can be shipped over sea or by rail or road and assembled on site, with a predictable program from first concrete to commissioning in just four years, including 500 days on site for the modular build.
