Topic: "The mPower Integral Modular Reactor Design"

117 Newberry St SW, Aiken SC
The Babcock & Wilcox Company plans to deploy the B&W mPower reactor - a scalable, modular, passively safe, advanced light water reactor system. This reactor has the capacity to provide 125 MWe to 750 MWe or more for a 4.5-year operating cycle without refueling, and is designed to produce clean, near-zero emission operations.
The mPower reactor will reduce risks associated with deploying nuclear power and become a flexible, cost-effective solution to the U.S. energy needs while lowering greenhouse gas emissions. Each B&W mPower reactor that is brought online will contribute to the reduction of approximately 57 million metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions over the life of the reactor.
Further information is available at the B&W website for Modular Nuclear Reactors.
