  1. Nuclear Power : NuScale submits design for new kind of nuclear power plant

      CORVALLIS, Ore. (AP) — Oregon-based NuScale Power has submitted its design to federal regulators for a new kind of nuclear power plant , designed to be smaller and more affordable. The company on Thursday submitted its 12,000-page application to the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission . The agency must approve the design before the small modular reactors can be built. The Corvallis Gazette-Times reports (http://bit.ly/2jcclCt) that each module is designed to generate 50 megawatts of electricity, compared to about 1,000 megawatts for a traditional nuclear power plant. Each self-contained reactor vessel could be built in a factory and shipped by truck, train or barge to its destination. NuScale officials hope to have the first 12-module power plant on a site at the Idaho National Laboratory, a federal facility near Idaho Falls. It would be owned by the Utah Associated Municipal Power Systems.
