Department of Energy (DOE) is undertaking the construction of Nuclear Power Plant at the Savannah River Site (SRS) in South Carolina, the US.

The project involves the construction of nuclear power plant with 25MW capacity demonstration nuclear reactor unit.

The reactors used in this plant will feature uniquely stable uranium nitride fuel, an environmentally secure lead bismuth eutectic coolant, and robust HT-9 stainless steel construction.

The reactor vessel used in this plant is about the size of a refrigerator and buried below grade for extra measure of security. The complete plant, including the electrical generation system is expected to come up in less than an acre land.

Gen4 Energy Inc. signed a MoU with Savannah River National Laboratory to build the first demonstration reactor at the Savannah River Site in South Carolina.

On March 2, 2012, the U.S. Energy Department and its SRS announced three public-private partnerships to develop deployment plans for small modular nuclear reactor (SMR) technologies at SRS facilities, near Aiken, South Carolina.

As part of the Energy Department’s commitment to advancing the next generation of nuclear reactor technologies and breaking down the technical and economic barriers to deployment, these Memorandums of Agreement (MOA) will help leverage Savannah River’s land assets, energy facilities and nuclear expertise to support potential private sector development, testing and licensing of prototype SMR technologies.

The Energy Department, Savannah River Site and Savannah River National Laboratory (SRNL) have entered into three separate agreements with Hyperion Power Generation Inc.; SMR, LLC, a subsidiary of Holtec International; and NuScale Power, LLC.

The agreements will help these private companies obtain information on potential SMR reactor sitting at Savannah River and provide a framework for developing land use and site services agreements to further these efforts.

Planning activities are underway.
