Canadian firm Prodigy Clean Energy and US-based Westinghouse are designing a transportable NPP (TNPP) featuring a Westinghouse eVinci microreactor with the aim of launching the first project in Canada by 2030. The TNPP will comprise 5 MWe eVinci microreactors installed on a floating Prodigy Microreactor Power Station. According to a Westinghouse blog, the TNPP would be pre-fabricated and transported to site to supply power and heat to “remote industrial sites, data centres, communities, defence installations, and to islands and island nations”.

US-based NuScale Power Corporation has opened the first privately-funded NuScale Energy Exploration Centre (E2 Centre) in Asia at Seoul National University (SNU) in partnership with GS Energy Corporation, Doosan Enerbility, and Samsung C&T Corporation. It will be used as a development tool for South Korea to develop the next generation of advanced nuclear experts, technologists, and operators. NuScale said this will position South Korea to become a regional leader of small modular reactor (SMR) deployment in Asia.

Utah Associated Municipal Power Systems (UAMPS) and Oregon-based NuScale Power have mutually agreed to terminate the Carbon Free Power Project (CFPP). The project envisaged construction of six small modular reactors (SMRs) at the US Department of Energy's (DOE’s) Idaho National Laboratory (INL). “Despite significant efforts by both parties to advance the CFPP, it appears unlikely that the project will have enough subscription to continue toward deployment.” A joint statement said. “Therefore, UAMPS and NuScale have mutually determined that ending the project is the most prudent decision for both parties.”
