U-Battery exhibits at SMR 2016 conference
10 June

U-Battery was delighted to co-sponsor the ‘Small Modular Reactors: What, Why and When? conference at St. Ermin's Hotel, London on 8-9 June 2016.

Delegates from across the nuclear industry attended the conference. U-Battery provided an insight into the design of the reactor and how it could provide high-efficiency, low-carbon electricity in an inherently safe way.

Steve Threlfall, General Manager, U-Battery comments:

“The SMR conference was a great opportunity to engage with an interested audience. We are now entering the next phase of U-Battery development which will deliver the Basic Design and commence Safety Case Preparation.”

The conference explored what constitutes a Small Modular Reactors (SMR), why they might be required in the UK, and when they might be deployed.

U-Battery is a micro-modular reactor being developed by URENCO, AMEC FW, Atkins, Cammell-Laird and Laing O’Rourke.
