We see BWRX-300 technology as a source of clean energy with zero CO2 emission, that can be delivered at any time, in any weather from a facility not larger than a football pitch.
It is a proven technology designed by a company with almost 70 years of experience in nuclear industry whose competences have been proven by over 60 operating BWR reactors.
10th generation of BWR
The BWRX-300 is a 300 MWe water-cooled, natural circulation Small Modular Reactor (SMR) with passive safety systems that leverages the design and licensing basis of GEH's U.S. NRC-certified ESBWR.
Through dramatic and innovative design simplification, the utilization of a licensed and proven fuel design and the incorporation of proven components and supply chain expertise, the BWRX-300 can become the lowest-risk, most cost-competitive and quickest to market SMR.
As the tenth evolution of the Boiling Water Reactor (BWR), the BWRX-300 represents the simplest, yet most innovative BWR design since GE began developing nuclear reactors in 1955.
BWRX-300 has been designed to have construction and operating costs that are substantially lower than traditional nuclear power generation technologies.
Smaller and smarter, but still with proven technology:
