NuScale selects PaR Systems for engineering works

30 November 2018

NuScale Power has selected Minnesota-based PaR Systems, LLC to begin engineering work for the manufacturing of its Reactor Building Crane (RBC), an important element of NuScale’s nuclear plant design. The decision follows an intensive selection process involving several major U.S. nuclear crane suppliers. NuScale selected the best company to partner with for developing technology capable of producing the precision movements necessary to meet NuScale’s design requirements.

The RBC is a key component of the NuScale reactor building that houses the NuScale Power Modules™. PaR Systems will perform the design, engineering and subsequent precision movement testing for NuScale’s RBC.

PaR Systems will start work in 2018 and is expected to continue the first phase of design work through 2019. NuScale intends to contract for the remaining design phases, initial design and design for manufacturing in 2019 and fabrication at a later date. PaR Systems is a leading supplier of material handling systems to both the U.S. government and commercial nuclear power industry. PaR’s headquarters and primary design team are located in Shoreview, MN, and has manufacturing capabilities in both Minnesota and Brunswick, GA.

NuScale’s technology is the world’s first and only SMR to undergo design certification review by the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, and is scheduled to complete its review of NuScale’s design certification application in September 2020.
