Company launched to develop NuScale SMRs in Romania
Energy firms Nuclearelectrica and Nova Power & Gas have launched a joint venture, RoPower Nuclear, for the development of small modular reactors in Romania, with SMR technology provided by NuScale Power, of Portland, Ore.
Largely state-owned, Nuclearelectrica operates Romania’s sole nuclear power facility, the two-unit Cernavoda plant, while Nova Power & Gas, a subsidiary of the privately held E-Infra Group, is a supplier and distributor of electricity and natural gas in Romania. The two firms own equal shares of RoPower.
With stronger public support and new NetZero policies in place, nuclear technology is primed for a major resurgence both here and abroad. Now, the race is on to upgrade our existing nuclear plants for the long haul and bring a new generation of advanced reactors into commercial operation.
It won’t be easy: our domestic supply chains need strengthening, our regulatory systems must be more agile and responsive, we have acute workforce shortages in skilled professions, and our fuel cycle and waste management policies are way behind the curve.
But the American nuclear community has done it before, and we can do it again.
Join us this November as thought leaders from across the nuclear enterprise tackle the practical challenges of ushering in a new nuclear era in the U.S. and around the world.
Over a quarter of our audience has decision-making and buying power (CNO, COO, VP and Senior level staff). These powerful decision-makers control huge budgets and attend the Winter Meeting with serious purchasing intent, looking for new technology solutions and practical innovations that best fit their operations’ needs.
Is your organization looking to bring on new talent with fresh ideas and energy? Thirty two percent of our audience are students and young members, just finishing college or looking for their first opportunity in the industry. Make your presence known to graduates from some of the top universities in the world.
The Diversity and Inclusion in ANS (DIA) Committee will once again offer travel grants up to $1000 for students to attend the ANS Winter Meeting and Technology Expo in Phoenix, AZ.
The grants are available for ANS student members who identify with underrepresented and historically excluded groups, including but not limited to:
