The grant will be provided to the Ukrainian Science and Technology Center (STCU). Experts will study whether the NuScale project meets the standards of the International Atomic Energy Agency, Ukrainian regulations and other documents. Also, gaps will be found that may interfere with the deployment of NuScale SMR on the territory of Ukraine.
We are talking about the power module of the NuScale reactor with a capacity of 50 MW. This version already has standard US Nuclear Regulatory Commission approval, but the company is about to reapply for the 77MW version. The modules will have to be deployed in the amount of four, six and twelve pieces.
