Interest in U-Battery continues to grow globally

11 November 2020

The U-Battery team is presenting to a wide range of different organisations globally as interest in the advanced/small modular reactor increases.

Within the last few days alone, presentations have been given to the Netherlands Nuclear Society, the Royal Dutch Society of Engineers, KIVI; the Canadian OCNI Advanced Manufacturing 2020 Forum; and UK and US nuclear bodies, the NIA and USNIC respectively.

U-Battery was delighted to explain the benefits the AMR/SMR can provide to sustainable low carbon energy generation, within the initial target markets of the UK and Canada and further afield.

Steve Threlfall, U-Battery’s General Manager, said: “U-Battery offers something different to the other advanced nuclear technologies being developed. It is a great solution for some difficult decarbonisation challenges such as the foundation industries and remote communities, as well as having a range of other applications including hydrogen production. It is fantastic that an increasingly wide range of audiences are keen to know more.”
