U-Battery demonstrated its value to the northern and remote communities of Canada by exhibiting at the CNA2018 conference in Ottawa.
Running from 21-23 February the event was attended by U-Battery General Manager Steve Threlfall and Director of Government Affairs for Urenco, Chris White.
This follows the announcement last year that a Memorandum of Understanding was signed with Bruce Power, a supplier of 30% of electricity in the Canadian Province of Ontario.
Steve said: “We are very committed to pursuing the opportunity to develop, license and eventually deploy U-Battery units across Canada.
“As part of this we were pleased to attend the CNA conference and hold discussions with a number of relevant parties. We look forward to future collaboration with them during the year.”
U-Battery is an advanced/small modular reactor, capable of providing a low-carbon, cost-effective, locally embedded and reliable source of power and heat for energy intensive industry and remote locations. It is being developed by Urenco in collaboration with a number of supporting organisations and has received funding from the UK Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy's Energy Innovation Portfolio.
