NuScale Power's unique, scalable approach to the deployment of commercial nuclear plants provides the financial, schedule, supply chain, and workforce advantages that will broaden the market for commercial nuclear power. NuScale Power also offers a new level of safety that may simplify siting and increase public acceptance of nuclear power. Although novel in its deployment approach, the factory-fabricated NuScale Power Module (NPM) relies on well-known light-water reactor technology, significantly reducing technological and regulatory risks. Most importantly, the NuScale design has achieved the “Triple Crown of Nuclear Safety.” That is, a NuScale reactor can safely shutdown and self-cool for an indefinite...
