China completes core module of world’s first commercial onshore small modular reactor

Posted by in categories: futurism, nuclear energy

The project is expected to be completed by 2026 and could help meet multiple energy demands.

China has completed a significant step toward establishing the world’s first commercial onshore small modular reactor. It has finished the installation of the core module of the reactor that it began building in 2021, the South China Morning Post.

With a power generation capacity of not more than 300 MW, small modular reactors (SMR) are believed to be the future of nuclear fission reactors. The advanced nuclear reactor design allows the power plant to be scaled down and established in remote locations that cannot be connected to the grid.
