Darrell Proctor of Power reports on a Canadian small modular reactor company.
- ARC Clean Technology Canada has recently signed a memorandum of understanding with the Alberta government to deploy its small modular reactor (SMR) in the province.
- ARC’s SMR, the ARC-100, is a sodium-cooled fast reactor which allows the reactor to operate more efficiently and at higher temperatures with lower pressure (which also improves safety).
- The ARC-100 also has a small physical footprint which makes it ideal for industrial applications and rural locations.
- The company will look to deploy its SMR in Canada in the early 2030s.
