U-Battery is continuing to make progress on UK and Canadian soil.
In January a commercial and technological feasibility study was submitted to the UK Government as part of its Advanced Modular Reactor Programme.
A recent application has also been made to participate in Canadian Nuclear Laboratories’ (CNL) invitation to site a Small Modular Reactor (SMR) demonstration unit at one of their managed campuses. U-Battery submitted its pre-qualification package earlier this month.
U-Battery will be hosting a booth (302) at the 2019 CNA Conference in Ottawa from 27 February to 1 March to explain more about the micro-modular nuclear reactor’s design and proposed application.
U-Battery is poised to play an important role in the UK and Canada’s low-carbon sustainable energy economy, to ensure reliable, cost-effective heat and power off-grid for industrial and remote communities. The development and commercialisation of U-Battery’s 10 MWt/4MWe high-temperature gas reactors have the potential to drive significant regional economic benefits across the UK and Canada.
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.
