Small and medium nuclear reactors under development
• Carem-25. 25MWe pressurised water reactor under development in Argentina. This reactor is being designed with an integral steam generator that could be coupled to a desalination process.
• KLT-40. 40MWe pressurised water reactor under development in Russia. This reactor is being designed as a barge-mounted version of a small-sized reactor used in icebreakers for electricity as well as heat generation in the northern part of Siberia.
• PBMR. 114MWe high temperature gas cooled reactor under development in South Africa. This reactor is being developed with a once-through fuel cycle and advanced safety features due to the use of ceramic-coated fuel particles with a high heat capacity.
• SMART. 100MWe pressurised water reactor under development in South Korea. The conceptual design of this reactor is almost complete and features an integral steam generator for multipurpose applications, including seawater desalination.
• NHR-200. 200MWt pressurised water reactor under development in China. Also in China, initial criticality of a small 10MWt high temperature reactor for non-electric applications.
• AHWR. 235MWe heavy water reactor under development in India. This is a vertical tube advanced reactor that would use a thorium-based fuel and incorporate passive cooling features.
• GT-MHR. 285MWe gas cooled reactor being developed through combined efforts in the USA, Russia, France and Japan.
