HALEU investment is key part of TerraPower’s demo proposal
TerraPower announced on September 15 that it plans to work with Centrus Energy to establish commercial-scale production facilities for the high-assay, low-enriched uranium (HALEU) needed to fuel many advanced reactor designs.
The proposed investment in HALEU fuel fabrication is tied to a TerraPower-led submittal to the Department of Energy’s Advanced Reactor Demonstration Program (ARDP), which was created to support the deployment of two first-of-a-kind advanced reactor designs within five to seven years. TerraPower would like one of those designs to be Natrium, the 345-MWe sodium fast reactor that it has developed with GE Hitachi Nuclear Energy.

It's Go Time: Creating Momentum Toward Transformational Change
Daniel ChurchmanUWC General Chair
Thank you for registering for our 2020 ANS Utility Working Conference Virtual Summit! We genuinely appreciate the support you and your organization have shown ANS during this unprecedented time. Nuclear waits for no one and nothing. Change is inevitable and we continue learning valuable lessons. No matter how we spin it, the theme of this year’s meeting is now more relevant than ever.
Cancelling this annual meeting was not an option as there are lessons to be learned and discussions to be had that simply cannot wait. Turning our in-person meeting into a one-day summit, we tightened up programming and look forward to bringing some of the best and the brightest together for lively discussions, panel sessions, and presentations.
We look forward to seeing you next year at Marco Island!
