Terrestrial Energy became the first SMR developer to enter phase 2 of the CNSC’s design review process. In this phase, Terrestrial’s advanced molten salt reactor design will be examined for any fundamental barriers to licensing.
Terrestrial was an early mover into Canada and the company recently signed a design services contract with BWXT Canada for the development of steam generators and heat exchangers. The company has also started pre-licensing activities in the U.S. and has signed a number of early-stage development and R&D agreements with public groups including the Idaho National Laboratory (INL).
