Babcock & Wilcox's mPower nucelar control room simulator up and running

The control room simulator for Babcock & Wilcox’s (NYSE: BWC) mPower small modular reactor design is now operational, the company reported in a press release Dec. 5.

Located in Lynchburg, Va., the control room prototype is built to “the same productions specifications as that which will control the two reactors in an actual B&W mPower SMR control room,” the release said. About two dozen engineers will use the facility, using their experience operating existing reactors to fine tune the mPower system design.
