NC State Nuclear joins X-energy as recipients of the DOE ADRP

The US Department of Energy (DOE), under the Advanced Reactor Development Program (ADRP), has awarded TerraPower, LLC (Bellevue, WA) and X-energy (Rockville, MD) $80 million each in initial funding to build two advanced nuclear reactors. These reactors will be delivered for licensing within seven years. Drs. Ivanov, Hawari, Avramova, Hou and Diaconeasa have a teaming agreement in place with X-Energy.

Based on its Xe-100 reactor design, they will deliver a commercial four-unit nuclear power plant. The Xe-100 is a high temperature gas-cooled reactor that is ideally suited to provide flexible electricity output as well as process heat for a wide range of industrial heat applications, such as desalination and hydrogen production.
