The Nuclear Futures Institute have had their AMR Report – Delivering Net Zero: The Role of Advanced Modular Reactors featered as an article in the Nuclear Institute’s Nuclear Future magazine. The article is titled “New report on Advanced Modular Reactor Technology released by the Nuclear Futures Institute” – and can be found in the September/October edition.
The September/October edition of the Nuclear Futures magazine is special because for the first time, anyone can read the issue – even without an NI membership, so get reading!
The plan includes the following aims:
• 2021: Proposed launch of Phase 2 of UK SMR design development.
• Mid 2020s: Hinkley Point C comes online.
• Early 2030s: First SMR and AMR demonstrators deployed in the UK.
At a virtual workshop the Institute examined this third target by bringing together a range of experts to explore how the UK’s past, present and likely future capability can be aligned with international developments to seize this opportunity.
The workshop showcased relevant aspects of the UK’s nuclear heritage from those who were there, including Andy Sherry and Juan Matthews (Manchester University), Susan Ortner (NNL), and John Lillington and John Stairmand (Jacobs).
The AMR report was built on the back of the NFI’s AMR Workshop – see blog page here.
