A lot of people are speculating about the potential role of small modular reactors, known in the nuclear industry by the acronym “SMRs.” These new reactor designs promise to deliver a clean and reliable alternative to fossil fuels – but the discussion typically focuses on the “S” and the “M,” as if those features represent the true innovation.
Terrestrial Energy and ENGIE Laborelec to Advance Development of IMSR, a Small Modular Reactor Power Plant That Uses Molten Salt Technology
Terrestrial Energy has contracted with ENGIE Laborelec in Belgium for technical services. This contract is part of Terrestrial Energy’s nuclear fuel salt qualification program for the Integral Molten Salt Reactor (IMSR®), a Generation IV nuclear power plant.
ENGIE Laborelec will perform confirmatory electrochemical and thermophysical measurements as well as confirmatory corrosion testing.
L3 MAPPS and Terrestrial Energy announced today that they have signed an agreement to develop real-time simulation for Terrestrial Energy’s Integral Molten Salt Reactor (IMSR®), a Generation IV advanced nuclear power plant.
