Abstract

BWXT Advanced Technologies LLC (BWXT) has an ongoing project under the DOE’s Advanced Reactor Demonstration Program, Risk Reduction pathway that supports future demonstration of a commercially viable, modular, transportable, high-temperature gas reactor (HTGR) for deployment in the early 2030s. The design capitalizes on BWXT’s proven technologies and fully licensed, domestic manufacturing facilities to target emerging markets, including small and remote communities, remote operations industries (e.g., mining), disaster response teams, and specialty applications where reliable power is not available.

BWXT’s baseline design offers a modular, factory-fabricated system that is small and light enough to be transported via rail, ship, or truck, and delivers 50 MW of thermal nuclear reactor power, It employs mature, manufacturable, inherently safe HTGR technology and a high working fluid temperature (800°C). It provides flexible energy options including electricity, steam, or both, while minimizing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
