The Micro Modular Reactor is expected to generate five megawatts of electricity or 15 megawatts of thermal power

The board will oversee and advise USNC-Power’s plan to fabricate and implement what the company has called a “Micro Modular Reactor.” 

Dubbed the “MMR,” the reactor is expected to generate five megawatts of electricity or 15 megawatts of thermal power, thus reducing the use of fossil fuels while addressing challenges associated with intermittent wind and solar energy production and storage. 

Together with Ontario Power Generation, USNC-Power has formed the Global First Power partnership, which will use the MMR as part of the Chalk River Demonstration Project, a commercial-scale project to license, construct and operate Canada’s first MMR.

“Canada’s SMR Action Plan provides concrete steps to help achieve its 2030 climate reduction targets under the Paris Agreement, and overall goal of net-zero emissions by 2050 using nuclear energy to get there,” USNC-Power said in a media statement. “USNC-Power’s advisory board announcement shows strong commitment to reaching these goals and will help keep the organization on track toward bringing the first technology of its kind to market.”
