Forbes: A Successful Nuclear Step For New Molten Salt Reactors
Read the rest here.
Terrestrial Energy Inc. (TEI), a Canadian advanced nuclear reactor company, received notice yesterday from the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) that it successfully completed the first phase of the CNSC’s pre-licensing vendor design review for TEI’s new Integral Molten Salt Reactor (IMSR®) nuclear power plant design.
This design review allows the government to assess the design and determine whether any obvious issues exist that would stop the licensing process and that could be resolved before the licensing process actually started. Success at this stage really shows whether or not the vendor is serious and has done their homework on what the regulator needs to approve the reactor design.
