Chicago Local Section Event

ANS Members Only
ANS Members, please log in to watch this webinar.
The ANS Chicago Section invites ANS members to a virtual presentation on SMR technology. Rebecca Norris, the planning lead with NuScale Power’s Regulatory Affairs, will provide an update on NuScale's innovative advanced small modular reactor nuclear technology.
NuScale Power is the industry-leading provider of proprietary and innovative advanced small modular reactor nuclear technology, with a mission to help power the global energy transition by delivering safe, scalable, and reliable carbon-free energy. Rebecca will provide an update on the company’s SMR technology, which is powered by the NuScale Power Module™, a small, safe, pressurized water reactor that can each generate 77 megawatts of electricity (MWe) or 250 megawatts thermal (gross), and can be scaled through an array of flexible configurations up to 924 MWe (12 modules) of output.
Rebecca has been with NuScale since 2019. She received her Bachelors and her Senior Reactor Operator license from the University of Texas, and went on to serve one tour in the U.S. Naval ballistic missile submarine force as an officer on the USS Louisiana. She earned her Masters of Nuclear Engineering from Penn State, and then joined NuScale as a Licensing Supervisor over safety analysis, pressure vessels, and technical specifications in the last year of the Design Certification approval. As the company grew and the number of projects increased, there arose a need for a technically-focused planner and scheduler assigned solely to Licensing, and Rebecca volunteered for that role.
