GE Hitachi Nuclear Energy (GEH) has said that its BWRX-300 small modular reactor (SMR) has been selected by Canada’s SaskPower for potential deployment in the mid-2030s. GEH President & CEO Jay Wileman said the BWRX-300 “is the ideal SMR technology solution for SaskPower”. He added: “There is the potential for great synergy between the work we plan to do with SaskPower and the ongoing work with Ontario Power Generation (OPG). OPG is expected to submit a construction licence application this year, a major step toward the deployment of the first BWRX-300.”
