From 22-24 February, U-Battery was an exhibitor and Silver Sponsor of the 2017 Canadian Nuclear Association Conference and Trade Show, held in Ottawa, Canada.
The theme of this year’s conference was “Mission Possible: Innovation for a Cleantech Future” and more than 850 participants attended from industry, government and academia.
Steve Threlfall, General Manager, U-Battery, comments:
“Innovative technologies were a dominant theme of the conference and delegateswere very enthusiastic about the potential of U-Battery and the benefits it can bring to the Canadian market. The discussion of Canada and Ontario’s Nuclear Advantage was a key message from industry and government.”
Sean Donnelly, from Amec Foster Wheeler on behalf of the U-Battery consortium, participated in the SML Panel Discussion on Challenges for Deployment and this was a successful discussion which led to delegates to seek further information on U-Battery at the exhibition stand.
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.
