U-Battery exhibits at Nuclear Industry Forum, London
From 15-16 May, U-Battery exhibited at the Nuclear Industry Forum in London, UK. For the eleventh year, the Forum bought together key figures in the nuclear industry and provided an opportunity for delegates to share updates and learn about developments upcoming in the industry over the next year.
Steve Threlfall, General Manager, U-Battery, contributed to one of the Vendors’ Panels titled, ‘Delivering innovation for the UK’s nuclear needs’, which considered the benefits of SMRs and how the UK is preparing to build a successful SMR industry.
Steve Threlfall comments:
“This is the first time U-Battery has exhibited at the Nuclear Industry Forum and it was a great opportunity for us to engage with colleagues in the nuclear industry.
“The Vendors’ Panel provided U-Battery, along with other modular reactor developers, a forum to discuss how all sizes of nuclear reactors are key to meeting the world’s low-emission energy needs. Different technologies offer different business propositions in terms of investment cost, maturity of design and complexity. The UK is in a good position to contribute significantly to the micro and small nuclear reactor market worldwide”
U-Battery is a high temperature gas micro modular nuclear reactor which will be able to produce local power and heat for a range of energy needs. It is being developed by URENCO, Amec Foster Wheeler, Laing O’Rourke and Cammell Laird.
