A component engineer’s perspective on RR SMR ’s power station design.

The world is facing an unprecedented demand for clean energy as we transition to Net Zero. The demand is for energy that is always on and which generates no emissions. Nuclear energy is the most powerful source of always on clean energy, however, it must be safe, deliverable, scalable and cost competitive for it to be widely embraced.

To meet this demand, Rolls-Royce SMR has developed a repeatable factory-built power station, that relies on tried and tested nuclear technology. This allows it to be constructed and made operational far more quickly than conventional bespoke nuclear design and build technology. The Rolls-Royce SMR approach lowers cost, reduces uncertainty and risk for developers and crucially, allows countries around the world to address their urgent need for low carbon energy.

In this lecture, Tom will provide an overview of the Rolls-Royce SMR power station and how it meets its design objectives in supporting the transition to Net Zero.
