Jae-Fu Kim of The Korea Economic Daily reports that NuScale is in talks to build a small modular reactor (SMR) plant in South Korea.
- NuScale and GS Group—NuScale’s South Korean SMR partner—are in talks with the government of the North Gyeongsang Province to build an SMR plant.
- The plant, which would be fitted with six modules from NuScale, would generate 462 megawatts of energy which is enough to power nearly 900,000 homes.
- If the project is approved by South Korea’s government it be the nation’s first SMR plant to be built in partnership with the U.S.
- Construction of the plant is expected to begin in 2028.
“The NuScale Power Module is built based on pressurized water-cooled reactor technology and can supply power for electrical generation, district heating, desalination, commercial hydrogen production and other process heat applications, according to NuScale Power.”
