GE Hitachi Signs Contract for the First North American Small Modular Reactor

GE Hitachi reports that it has signed the first commercial contract for a grid-scale SMR in North America.

The C3 Take
  • The BWRX-300 small modular reactor (SMR) will be deployed at Ontario Power Generation’s Darlington New Nuclear Project east of Toronto.
  • GE’s BWRX produces 300 MWe, enough to power more than 100,000 homes with clean and reliable energy.
  • The company is expecting to bring the technology to the market by 2028.
  • Private sector innovation is driving energy and climate progress.

“‘This contract is an important milestone and solidifies our position as the leading SMR technology provider,’ said GEH President and CEO Jay Wileman. ‘We aim to deliver the first SMR in North America and, in doing so, lead the start of a new era of nuclear power that will provide zero-emission energy generation, energy security and energy reliability around the globe. We can’t express our appreciation enough for the leadership role that OPG and the Province of Ontario are taking for a project that will benefit Ontario, Canada and the world.'”
