NuScale Gets a Win with SMRs for Data Centers in Ohio and Pennsylvania

Aaron Larson of Power writes that NuScale’s SMRs may soon power data centers in Ohio and Pennsylvania.

The C3 Take
  • As the use of artificial intelligence and cloud storage increase, data centers are looking for reliable, clean power to fuel operations.
  • Standard Power hopes to deploy 24 units of NuScale’s 77 megawatt small modular reactor at two data centers in Pennsylvania and Ohio.
  • NuScale is also working with the Utah Associated Municipal Power Systems to deploy six of its 77 megawatt reactors in Idaho.

“In addition to data centers, NuScale says its SMR technology is well-suited to supply energy for district heating, desalination, commercial-scale hydrogen production, and other process heat applications. In May, NuScale signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with Nucor Corporation to explore co-locating VOYGR power plants to provide baseload electricity to Nucor’s scrap-based electric arc furnace (EAF) steel mills. The companies said they will also explore an expanded manufacturing partnership through which Nucor, the largest steel producer and recycler of any type of material in North America, would supply Econiq, its net-zero steel products, for NuScale projects.”
