World Nuclear News reports that the Xe-100 will be deployed in the UK.

The C3 Take
  • X-energy has received $4.2 million in public funding, which the company will match, to develop the Xe-100 in the UK.
  • In partnership with UK firm Cavendish, X-energy will use this money for “UK-specific deployment plans including an assessment of domestic manufacturing and supply chain opportunities, constructibility, modularisation studies and fuel management.”
  • Designed to be operate in a standard 320 megawatt four pack, the Xe-100 is a gas cooled small modular reactor that can deliver energy to the grid or power industrial operations.

“The two companies also announced a partnership with Kier Group, a leading UK provider of construction and infrastructure services, to support constructability and supply chain analyses. Kier joins steel producer and engineer Sheffield Forgemasters and the Nuclear Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (NAMRC) to support X-energy and Cavendish in completing the scope outlined in their FNEF proposal. The companies’ goal is for 80% of the value of the Xe-100 projects to flow to UK firms.”
