Westinghouse Secures First Customer for eVinci Nuclear Microreactor

Credit to Author: Sonal Patel| Date: Mon, 27 Nov 2023 16:10:01 +0000

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 […]
