- Nov 12, 2020 4:20 pm GMT
NuScale used advanced testing and modeling to determine the NuScale Power Module™ (NPM) can generate an additional 25 percent more power per module for a total of 77 MWe per module (gross), resulting in about 924 MWe for the flagship 12-module power plant. This breakthrough in economic value means that Nuscale modules will be clearly superior to all of the conventional large nuclear reactors and competitive against many natural gas and clean coal alternatives. The overnight kilowatt cost for Nuscale is expected to drop from $3,600 to approximately $2,850. For power generation capacity capital costs are often expressed as overnight
