Ontario-based BWX Technologies (BWXT) has been awarded an engineering contract by GE Hitachi Nuclear Energy (GEH) for its BWRX-300 small modular reactor (SMR) reactor pressure vessel (RPV). Work associated with the contract includes engineering analysis, design support, manufacturing and procurement preparations. John MacQuarrie, president of BWXT Commercial Operations said intricate design projects such as the RPV for GEH’s BWRX-300 “are well-suited for BWXT’s engineering capabilities”.

GE Hitachi Nuclear Energy (GEH) has awarded an engineering contract for its BWRX-300 small modular reactor pressure vessel to Ontario, Canada-based BWX Technologies (BWXT).

The RPV, which contains the reactor core and associated internals, is the largest component within the BWRX-300.

BWXT said work associated with the contract includes engineering analysis, design support, manufacturing and procurement preparations.

In October, GEH announced it had entered into a teaming agreement with BWXT Canada to cooperate on engineering and procurement to support the design, manufacturing and commercialisation of the BWRX-300 SMR.

Earlier this month, GEH announced that the BWRX-300 had achieved a significant pre-licensing milestone in Canada with the completion of phases one and two of the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission’s (CNSC) vendor design review process.

The Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) says it has completed a combined phases 1 & 2 vendor design review (VDR) of GE Hitachi Nuclear Energy’s BWRX-300 boiling water reactor. The VDR takes place during the design process and gives CNSC an opportunity to provide early feedback. It is an optional service provided by CNSC at the request of a vendor. It does not involve issuance of a licence, or influence subsequent CNSC decisions.
