NuScale changes focus from development to delivery

NuScale Power, the Portland, Ore.–based small modular reactor developer, will make a strategic shift from product development to product delivery with the establishment of a new VOYGR Services and Delivery business unit, the company announced this week.

The new organization will be dedicated to working with customers and tasked with the delivery of services and equipment associated with the sale, development, delivery, and commercial operation of the company’s VOYGR nuclear power plants.

Dubbed VOYGR last December, the NuScale plant is designed to accommodate up to 12 77-MWe NuScale Power Modules for a total capacity of 924 MWe. Also offered are the four-module (308 MWe) and six-module (462 MWe) facilities.

The new business unit will be led by Thomas Mundy, who will transition from his role as NuScale’s chief commercial officer to president of VOYGR Services and Delivery. He will report to NuScale president and chief executive officer John Hopkins and will have full profit-and-loss accountability for the unit. Mundy has served as NuScale’s CCO since 2017.

What they’re saying: “Positioning NuScale toward product delivery is a natural and exciting next step for the company,” said Hopkins. “We are dedicated to changing the power that changes the world. Working closely with our customers to deploy our groundbreaking SMR technology that is setting a new standard for clean, reliable, and safe power is a critical part of that mission.”

Mundy added, “As more utilities, institutions, and countries see NuScale’s VOYGR plants as the premier energy solution to address the challenge of mitigating climate change while protecting global prosperity, NuScale is ready to meet the moment. That is why now is the pivotal time for NuScale to undergo this tactical expansion to prepare our organization to scale and ultimately to improve the energy futures for all.”
