POWER magazine: Could Advanced Reactor Technology Save the Nuclear Industry?

Terrestrial Energy offered details about a less-conventional advanced nuclear design…touting Terrestrial’s 400-MWth (192-MWe) liquid-fueled SMR. Called the IMSR® (Integral Molten Salt Reactor), it incorporates many aspects of molten salt reactor operation researched, demonstrated, and proven in test reactors at ORNL in the 1960s. “[There are] thousands of hours of operational expertise on this particular technology,” Robin Rickman said. “We can talk for hours on why it was curtailed, but it had nothing to do with the technology,” he added.
