Urenco says it is withdrawing its support for the U-Battery advanced modular reactor (AMR) project "having exhausted its attempts to secure the commitment of new commercial investors". The U-Battery project was initiated by Urenco in 2008 based on a concept design developed by the Universities of Manchester and Dalton Institute in the UK and Technology University of Delft in the Netherlands. The design is for a 4 MWe high-temperature gas-cooled micro-reactor using high-integrity TRISO fuel. It is intended to produce local power and heat to replace diesel power for a variety of applications, including remote communities and other off-grid locations such as mining operations.
