GEH Nuclear Energy celebrates three-nation plan for BWRX-300 standard design
“I’m glad you came to our party!” said GE Hitachi Nuclear Energy (GEH) chief nuclear officer Nicole Holmes as she prepared to announce that Wilmington, N.C.–based GEH will develop a standard design for its BWRX-300 boiling water small modular reactor with not one but three power producers representing three countries: Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA), Ontario Power Generation (OPG), and Synthos Green Energy (SGE). Celebration was a theme throughout the March 23 event held in Washington, D.C., which was flush with dignitaries representing the United States, Canada, and Poland.

The ANS PSA biennial topical conference has been a forum for communication on major probabilistic risk and nuclear safety topics worldwide, including issues, methods, applications, insights, policy, research, and risk-informed regulation experience. The overarching theme of PSA 2019 was the role of probabilistic methods in understanding uncertainties and improving the safety and security of nuclear facilities and activities. PSA 2019 had 129 presentations with topics including multiunit and full-site PSA, dynamic PSA, advanced and small modular reactors (SMRs), the human-machine interface and human reliability assessment (HRA), waste processing/cleanup, reliability of systems/structures/components, natural phenomena/seismic and fire risk, the growing area of decommissioning and decontamination of nuclear facilities, testing to reduce uncertainties, as well as advances in core areas of traditional Level 1, 2, and 3 PSA.
