NuScale Power Corporation has placed the first upper reactor pressure vessel long lead material production order with Doosan Enerbility. The order includes essential materials for the manufacture of the first NuScale Power Modules, which are expected to be in commercial operation at the Utah Associated Municipal Power Systems’ Carbon Free Power Project by 2029. The order is a significant step towards the commercialization of NuScale’s small modular reactor technology. NuScale and Doosan are also aligned to manufacture additional modules for future NuScale VOYGR SMR power plant projects with similar delivery dates. The order includes heavy forgings, steam generator tubes, and weld material for six upper RPVs, with an estimated weight of over 2,000 tons.
