Darlington Nuclear Plant Will Get a BWRX-300 SMR as GE Hitachi Bags Lucrative OPG Selection

Sonal Patel of Power reports that Ontario’s Darlington nuclear plant will build a BWRX-300 SMR from GE Hitachi.

The C3 Take
  • Ontario Power Generation will build a small modular reactor from GE Hitachi with the hopes of bringing the reactor online by 2028.
  • In addition to Canada, GE Hitachi is looking to begin partnerships with governments and utility companies in Poland, Estonia, and the Czech Republic to advance nuclear energy.
  • Private sector innovation is creating a cleaner environment.

“Ontario Power Generation (OPG) will build a GE Hitachi Nuclear Energy (GEH) BWRX-300 small modular reactor (SMR) at its Darlington Nuclear Station in Clarington, Ontario, marking a major triumph for the nuclear vendor in a stiff competition for the much-watched utility-scale project.”
