DL E&C, Doosan to invest $25 mn in SMR developer X-Energy

Ik-Hwan Kim of The Korea Economic Daily reports that DL E&C and Doosan will invest $25 million into X-energy.

The C3 Take
  • In addition to the $25 million that it is set to receive from DL E&C and Doosan, X-energy is also raising $60 million from Seoul-based private equity firm Whale Investment Co.
  • When sold at a commercial scale X-energy’s small modular nuclear reactor, the Xe-100, is able to safely and cleanly power close to 300,000 homes.
  • The company also encapsulates its fuel in a graphite ceramic ball that captures 99.9% of a reactor’s waste.
  • Private sector leadership is driving meaningful energy innovation.

“For Doosan, the investment is expected to provide an opportunity to pursue diverse industrial applications of the Xe-100 technology, including the use of steam heat from the reactor to produce hydrogen or for other industries.”
