Terrestrial Energy announced today that it has signed on BWXT Canada Ltd. for a design services contract to support development of key components in Terrestrial Energy’s Generation IV Integral Molten Salt Reactor (IMSR®) power plant.
The Canadian government now joins the United States and the United Kingdom to state the importance of Generation IV SMRs in a national energy system.
Terrestrial Energy is leading advanced reactor developers to market with its game-changing IMSR® design.

IMSR® power plants are virtually emission-free on a life cycle basis.
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.
The U.S. Department of Energy announced on Nov. 13 that it had selected Terrestrial Energy USA for a financial award to support the company’s pre-application activities with the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.
These activities will advance the licensing of the Integral Molten Salt Reactor (IMSR®) power plant design in the U.S. and accelerate its deployment.
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.
