Dr. James Conca writes that Terrestrial Energy is on its way to making their innovative design, the Integral Molten Salt Reactor (IMSR®), a reality.
NRG is to carry out testing of materials, including graphite, for key components of Terrestrial Energy’s Integral Molten Salt Reactor (IMSR®) power plant in the High-Flux Reactor at Petten in the Netherlands under a contract announced on 5 February.
There are many reasons to be excited about advanced nuclear reactors. We have, in companies such as NuScale, Terrestrial Energy, Oklo, TerraPower, X-Energy and many more, the entrepreneurial spirit.
Nuclear utilities are playing a growing role in Canadian SMR development and their operational expertise could support the first fleet deployment at mining sites.
Nuclear power’s image problem has stunted investment for years. Now, as the threat of climate change looms larger, cutting-edge start-ups are bringing the energy source back into the conversation.
At Terrestrial Energy, we believe our Integral Molten Salt Reactor (IMSR®) can vastly expand nuclear energy’s capabilities. And because it is smaller, more economical and faster to build than traditional reactors, the Generation-4 IMSR® power plant opens new markets.
Whatever your take on climate change, nuclear power is the safest option for averting Australia’s looming energy crisis, argues Bright New World Founder Dr. Ben Heard.
And while the SMR road is littered with attrition, there is cause for genuine optimism and even a measure of excitement.
Terrestrial Energy’s 400-MW Integral Molten Salt Reactor has begun the second stage of its pre-licensing vendor design review by the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission, the company said October 16.
