 Terrestrial Energy Submits Nuclear Reactor Design for Review

Terrestrial Energy submitted its nuclear reactor design to Canadian regulators for the first phase of pre-licensing vendor design review.
Terrestrial Energy submitted the Integral Molten Salt Reactor (IMSR) design to the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) for the review. During the review process, which is an optional feedback process offered by the CNSC, Terrestrial Energy will demonstrate that the design meets Canadian regulatory requirements in a number of technical topic areas. The review is seen as a first step toward a potential license application to build the first commercial IMSR power plant.
Terrestrial Energy’s IMSR will be designed to complement renewable energy sources and is ideal for distributed power systems or existing grids. The reactor will offer electricity production both on- and off-grid, as well as energy for industrial process heat generation. The reactor is expected to be commercially available in Canada in the 2020s.
