I would focus my research into three catagories: 1. Companies who are working on the technology today (Fluor, NuScale Power, Westinghouse Nuclear, etc.), professional organizations who are aiding in the R&D (ASME, World Nuclear Organization, Nuclear Energy Agency, etc.), and the nuclear energy industry regulatory agencies (NRC, IAEA, US Dept of Energy, etc.) responsible for writing the rules. Search those three silos thoroughly and you should come up with some good info - although you may have to pay for some of the papers. I'd also take a look at anything you can find on the US Navy's program. Although their technology is outdated by your standards and their philosophies are biased by their tasking (warship) vs. yours (merchant marine), they are in the business of teaching 18-19 year old kids how to operate and maintain nuclear reactors. I'm sure that some of their knowledge-transfer principles would cross over into your environment.
Does anyone have based information about the maintenance of a SMR reactor?

In my final year investigation, I´m researching about the implementation of SMR to merchant ships, so they dont generate those COx. But unluckely I´m having some difficulties in my researching job, cause there is a lack of info on the net about the specific topic of this new technology.
Any help would be appreciated.
