Prodigy and Westinghouse Targeting Launch of eVinci Floating Nuclear Plant in Canada by 2030

Sonal Patel writes in Power about Westinghouse’s partnership to deploy a floating nuclear plant in Canada.

The C3 Take
  • The project will see Prodigy use one or multiple of Westinghouse’s 5 megawatt eVinci micro reactors as a floating nuclear power plant (FNPP) in Canada.
  • FNPPs can be easily mobilized and deployed to remote locations and projects including mining, offshore drilling, desalination, ocean cleanup, and data centers.
  • Today the only operational FNPP that is not on a submarine is located in Russia.
  • Prodigy also has a memorandum of understanding with NuScale to deploy FNPPs.

“Prodigy underscores flexibility will be a key driver for the emerging FNPP market. But rather than developing reactors, its approach is to partner with leading SMR vendors to offer a standardized, scalable, and fully transportable nuclear power plant system—essentially by linking expertise in three mature industries: nuclear, maritime, and transport.”
