 Areva to Manufacture SMR Fuel Assemblies for NuScale

Areva will manufacture fuel assemblies for NuScale’s small modular nuclear reactors (SMR).
Areva will supply the initial cores for the reactors as well as subsequent reloads. The HTP fuel assemblies have been designed for use in the SMRs currently under development. Mechanical and thermal hydraulic testing of these new fuel assemblies are underway as part of NuScale’s 50-MW SMR design certification application, which the company plans to submit to the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission in 2016.
