World Nuclear News: Canadian siting studies for commercial IMSR
Read the rest here.
Terrestrial Energy has begun a feasibility study for the siting of the first commercial Integral Molten Salt Reactor (IMSR®) at Canadian Nuclear Laboratories’ (CNL) Chalk River site, with a further vision of creating a technology hub at CNL to support the commercialisation of small modular reactors (SMR).
Terrestrial Energy said the study is being conducted by CNL and in parallel with a Request for Expression of Interest (RFEOI) that CNL launched on 2 June. CNL will use the responses to the RFEOI to inform a roadmap taking into account the considerations of reactor developers, the supply chain, end users and other stakeholders. The organisation aims to position itself as a key partner in the development and deployment of SMRs.
