DHIC signs an MoU with NuScale Power

17 May 2019

Doosan Heavy Industries & Construction (DHIC) has announced on April 30 that it had signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) for strategic cooperation on a small modular reactor (SMR) project with NuScale Power LLC, a nuclear power technology company based in the United States.

NuScale Power is currently developing the SMR with the support of the US Department of Energy. The company plans to supply the small modular nuclear reactor to the small nuclear power project that UAMPS is carrying out in the United States, with the goal of opening it for commercial operation by 2026.

The SMR developed by NuScale Power is an integrated reactor that contains all the core components in a reactor vessel with a diameter of 4.5 m and a height of 23 m. The main design feature consists of a reactor vessel enclosed within a containment shell, thus dispensing with the need for a separate containment structure.

With the signing of this MOU, DHIC plans to review the manufacturability of NuScale Power’s SMR design and supply the NPM, the core component of the UAMPS nuclear power project.
