Joint European Canadian Chinese development of Small Modular Reactor Technology

Project description

An intercontinental collaboration paves the way for next-generation nuclear energy

Nuclear energy has an important role to play in the effort to reduce dependence on the combustion of fossil fuels for electricity. Nuclear reactor designs are categorised according to 'generation', with Generation IV being currently under development and deployment. An international task force is collaborating to develop six nuclear reactor technologies for deployment between 2020 and 2030, among them the supercritical water-cooled reactor. One of the main challenges is the demonstration of its passive safety systems. The EU-funded ECC-SMART project is addressing this challenge by assessing the feasibility of a small modular reactor cooled by supercritical water and identifying its passive safety features. The project encompasses the design and pre-licensing requirements as well as a roadmap for demonstration of safety.
