Charlotte, N.C. – April 26, 2022 – Terrestrial Energy USA, a leading developer of Generation IV fission technology, has joined the Fuel Cell and Hydrogen Energy Association (FCHEA), the national industry association for the fast growing fuel cell and hydrogen sectors.
Sydney, Australia and Oakville, Ontario, Canada, February 2, 2022 – ANSTO, Australia’s knowledge centre for nuclear science and technology, and Terrestrial Energy have agreed to explore ANSTO Synroc® (synthetic rock) proprietary waste treatment technology for used fuel management.
Under the agreement, ANSTO will provide technical consulting services to Terrestrial Energy for the conditioning of used reactor fuel from the operation of Integral Molten Salt Reactor (IMSR®) heat and power plants in Canada, United Kingdom, United States, and other global markets.
Charlotte, NC, January 25, 2022 – Terrestrial Energy USA, Inc. has extended its testing program at Argonne National Laboratory (ANL) for measurements of fuel salt properties used in the Integral Molten Salt Reactor (IMSR®), a Generation IV nuclear power plant.
Terrestrial Energy Appoints Managing Director to Spearhead Commercialization of New Nuclear Technology in the UK
Oxford, United Kingdom, January 18, 2022 – Terrestrial Energy has appointed a senior nuclear industry executive as Managing Director of UK operations as the company advances its new nuclear technology.
Michael Drury joins the company from the UK National Nuclear Laboratory (NNL), where he led the business development function for New Build and Advanced Nuclear Technologies, including Small Modular Reactors and Advanced Modular Reactors.
The appointment comes as Terrestrial Energy moves forward with the development and commercialisation of its Integral Molten Salt Reactor (IMSR®) Generation IV nuclear technology in the UK.
Mr Drury has extensive experience of strategy and execution at the intersection of industry and government in the nuclear industry at both NNL and previously at Nuvia.
Simon Irish, CEO of Terrestrial Energy said: “Terrestrial Energy’s North American developments are moving its Generation IV nuclear power plant towards near term deployment, and we recognize that IMSR® technology is an ideal nuclear technology innovation for the UK, especially at a time of escalating energy and power prices.
Oakville, Ontario – December 7, 2021 – The Organization of Canadian Nuclear Industries (OCNI) has awarded L3Harris Technologies its 2021 Innovation Award for its work developing a simulator for Terrestrial Energy’s Integral Molten Salt Reactor (IMSR®), a Generation IV nuclear power plant.
Oakville, Ontario, Canada – November 30, 2021 – Terrestrial Energy and Siemens Energy Canada have signed a contract for the manufacturing and supply of steam turbines and other balance-of-plant equipment, such as transformers, switchgear, and motor drive systems, for the Integral Molten Salt Reactor (IMSR®), a Generation IV nuclear power plant.
The IMSR® generates steam for power generation at standard utility class temperature and pressure, and from systems that are isolated from its nuclear reactor.
CHARLOTTE, NC – November 24, 2021 – Terrestrial Energy USA was awarded a $3 million grant from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) to support licensing and commercialisation of its Integral Molten Salt Reactor (IMSR®), a Generation IV nuclear power plant.
Choosing Canadian Generation IV SMR Would Reward Ontario with Once-in-a-Generation Economic Windfall: Hatch Study
· Next-generation (“Generation IV”) nuclear reactor power plants have enormous potential to replace fossil fuel plants in Canada’s and the world’s energy grids
· Exporting commercial nuclear power plant technology could contribute more to the Canadian economy than automobile manufacturing by 2050
· Only Generation IV reactor technology will dramatically improve the economics of nuclear power generation to allow Canada to maximize the benefits and perpetuate its traditional leadership in commercial nuclear power
· Choosing a Canadian Generation IV reactor technology, rather than a technology developed outside of Canada, has the greatest potential to boost employment for Canadian companies many times over and maximize GDP benefits for Ontario and Canada
Oakville, Ontario – October 26, 2021 – Terrestrial Energy has awarded BWXT Canada Ltd. engineering design contracts for steam generators and heat exchangers for use in the Integral Molten Salt Reactor (IMSR®), a Generation IV nuclear power plant.
