NuScale completes standard plant design project

4 January 2023

US-based NuScale Power Corporation said it has completed the Standard Plant Design (SPD) project for its VOYGR small modular reactor (SMR) ahead of schedule. The NuScale Power Module is a small pressurised water reactor designed to generate 70MWe, which and can be scaled up to meet customer needs. The 12-module VOYGR-12 power plant would be capable of generating 924MWe. NuScale is also offering a four-module VOYGR-4 (308MWe) and six-module VOYGR-6 (462MWe) power plants, as well as other configurations. 

The SPD provides customers with a generic VOYGR power plant design that will serve as a starting point for deploying site-specific designs. NuScale said. It includes 12,000 deliverables to support client-licensing and deployment activities. These include: full material takeoffs; equipment lists; data sheets; architectural and construction drawings and specifications; detailed system design specifications and calculations; electrical single-lines and load lists; and mechanical piping and instrumentation diagrams. NuScale has also produced a 3D model of the power plant.

John Hopkins, NuScale President and CEO, said: “With the completion of the SPD project, we are one step closer to helping our customers and the global community realise the benefits of advanced nuclear.” 

However, NuScale noted that its forward-looking statements are inherently subject to risks, uncertainties and assumptions. “Actual results may differ materially as a result of a number of factors. Caution must be exercised in relying on these and other forward-looking statements… These forward-looking statements should not be relied upon as representing NuScale’s assessments as of any date subsequent to the date of this release. Accordingly, undue reliance should not be placed upon the forward-looking statements.”
