U-Battery milestones reached in the UK and Canada

22 February 2019

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.


About U-Battery

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 Jacobs, Kinectrics and Laing O’Rourke and has received funding from the UK Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy's Energy Innovation Portfolio.
