ARC and AECOM collaborate on New Brunswick SMR project

09 April 2019

ARC Nuclear Canada, Inc. has recently announced that it has entered an agreement with AECOM, a premier, fully integrated global infrastructure firm, to continue its development of the Advanced Reactor Concepts ARC-100 technology.

In 2018, ARC Canada, NB Power and the Government of New Brunswick announced an agreement to work together to explore the potential for a commercial demonstration of the ARC-100 in New Brunswick as part of a larger program to establish the Province as a worldwide “Center of Excellence” manufacturing hub for the ARC-100 technology. The ARC-100 technology is an advanced small modular reactor (SMR), which could be deployed in New Brunswick and lead to significant economic growth opportunities as ARC Canada implements its worldwide supply chain “Centre of Excellence”.

AECOM, through its Canada Nuclear Operations, Inc, business, will provide architecture and engineering services to support the deployment of ARC Nuclear’s ARC-100 SMR.

Since 2006, AECOM has been providing engineering and construction services to support the advancement of several nuclear technologies, including next-generation nuclear reactors and SMRs.
