More than 100 Canadian nuclear suppliers tune in to hear the latest on U-Battery and our advanced SMR

13 November 2020

The event on 26 October, held virtually this year due to COVID-19, was organised in partnership with the OCNI and included speakers from the U-Battery Project team, including Canadian consortium member Kinectrics.

The additional funding U-Battery secured earlier this year through the UK Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy’s (BEIS) Advanced Modular Reactor Competition was outlined, including how it has accelerated the reactor’s development in both the UK and Canada. There are a multitude of market and supply chain opportunities for Canadian companies to explore with U-Battery, and there was a high level of interest from the forum attendees.
