The eVinci microreactor has very few moving parts, working "essentially as a battery, providing the versatility for power systems ranging from several kilowatts to 5 MW of electricity, delivered 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for eight-plus years without refueling," Westinghouse says. "It can also produce high temperature heat suitable for industrial applications including alternative fuel production such as hydrogen, and has the flexibility to balance renewable output." The technology is 100% factory built and assembled before it is shipped in a container to any location. Courtesy: Westinghouse

Westinghouse’s first customer for its eVinci microreactor—a flagship 5-MWe/13 MWth “nuclear battery”—is poised to be the Saskatchewan Research Council (SRC), Canada’s second-largest research and technology organization. The commercial laboratory that […]

Sembcorp’s Sakra power plant is a cogeneration plant in Pulau Sakra on Jurong Island that opened in November 2001. The plant’s two GE 9F gas turbines produce power for the grid and process steam for chemical and petrochemical facilities nearby. Sembcorp in 2014 opened a second cogeneration facility on Jurong Island, the 400-MW Banyan plant, which features a single GT26 gas turbine unit. Courtesy: Sembcorp

Singapore-based Sembcorp Industries, GE Vernova, and Japanese heavy industry firm IHI Corp. will jointly examine potentially retrofitting two GE 9F gas turbines at an 815-MW gas-fired combined cycle power plant […]

Is a Nuclear Reactor Headed to the Heart of Your City?

Credit to Author: Aaron Larson| Date: Thu, 02 Mar 2023 17:33:33 +0000

It’s not uncommon for nuclear power plants to be sited relatively close to large metropolitan areas (within 50 miles, for example), after all, that is where the biggest loads are, but reactors are rarely placed near the center of large cities. This is mainly due to the risks associated with a meltdown, or even a […]
