We provide an update on recent advances in pressure tube reactor (PTR) technology as exemplified by progress in the continuous research and development path that has been defined. This includes numerous and fruitful strategic development partnerships, both nationally and internationally, to contribute to the major areas of technological innovation, economic competitiveness, energy security, sustainability and environmental stewardship. We discuss the major areas of advancement in R&D that utilize the inherent features and advantages of the unique PTR concepts of utilizing a low pressure, heavy water moderator with a modular channel construction.
