Small Modular Reactors (SMR) to Support the Growth of Nuclear Power
Small Modular Reactors (SMR) to Support the Growth of Nuclear Power

Summary

Small Modular Reactors (SMRs), also known as small or medium sized reactors, are a new set of reactor designs being developed across the world. These reactors offer many specific advantages that can aid the growth of nuclear power in many countries. Factors like low capital investment, reduced risk, proliferation resistance, quicker return on investment and minimized construction periods will prove SMRs to be a viable technology for the use of nuclear power. SMRs, apart from electricity generation, are envisaged to be used for process heating in industries, water desalination and district heating.
