US company X-energy on 16 March announced the start of work on the conceptual design of its Xe-100 high temperature gas-cooled pebble bed modular reactor. This followed an evaluation by an external panel of industry experts from Southern Nuclear, Burns & McDonnell and Technology Insights. The review validated the baseline design parameters, preparatory documentation, analysis tools, scope of the proposed conceptual design phase (including all planned deliverables), management processes and overall team readiness to proceed to the next phase of reactor development. X-energy plans to deploy the Xe-100 within 10 years. CEO Kam Ghaffarian said moving the reactor into conceptual design put the company "well on the way" towards its goal.
