NuScale Power signed an agreement with Areva for the performance of fuel design, testing and analysis services for Areva’s HTP fuel technology.
Included in the agreement are Areva’s nuclear testing capabilities, including critical heat flux testing, steam generator flow-induced vibration testing, and control rod assembly drop alignment testing.
NuScale is developing a 45-MW modular reactor that received a $217 million cost-sharing deal over five years with the U.S. Department of Energy and supporting company Fluor Corp. (NYSE: FLR).
