NuScale’s SMR Design Clears Phase 4 of NRC Design Review Process
- Dec 30, 2019 4:13 pm GMT
NuScale Power announced in December that the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) has completed the fourth phase of review of the design certification application (DCA) for the company’s revolutionary small modular reactor (SMR). NuScale reached this milestone on schedule, marking yet another significant achievement along its path to commercialization. The entire review of NuScale’s SMR design is now in Phases 5 and 6.
The announcement, along with ongoing work by NuScale’s supply chain and manufacturing partners, demonstrates how close NuScale is to bringing the country’s first SMR into production and operation. NuScale’s achievement is a result of the successful private-public partnership with the U.S. Department of Energy and support from Congress.
