Request for proposal released for Eielson Air Force Base Micro-Reactor Pilot Program

The Air Force reports on a new nuclear reactor development.

The C3 Take
  • Eielson Air Force Base in Alaska has released a request for proposal to build an advanced microreactor.
  • Building a microreactor on the base is important as it will test the commercial and technological viability of next generation nuclear power.
  • The microreactor will be licensed by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission but will be commercially owned and operated.

“The Micro-Reactor Pilot Program was initiated in response to the Fiscal Year 2019 National Defense Authorization Act requirement to construct and operate a micro-reactor by the end of 2027. The micro-reactor will be licensed by the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, but commercially owned and operated.”
