Terrestrial complete the pre-qualification stage of CNL

12 March 2019

Terrestrial Energy has completed the pre-qualification stage of Canadian Nuclear Laboratories’ (CNL) invitation process to site a Small Modular Reactor (SMR) at a CNL-managed site. Responding to the CNL’s 2018 invitation, Terrestrial Energy presented a siting proposal to CNL for its 195 MWe Integral Molten Salt Reactor (IMSR®), a Generation-IV Advanced SMR power plant.

Terrestrial Energy is one of two applicants to move to the stage two of the siting invitation process. During this stage, CNL will more closely evaluate the technical and operational merits of the proposed designs. Several reactor developers have applied to the four-stage CNL evaluation, which could result in the construction of a demonstration SMR at one or more CNL campuses.
