Fluor’s NuScale Power Achieves U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission Design Certification

gbafNews28

Fluor Corporation (NYSE: FLR) announced today that NuScale Power, in which Fluor is the majority investor, received final design certification by the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC), which is expected to advance the commercialization of NuScales small modular nuclear reactor (SMR) technology.

The energy future of the U.S. and the world is increasingly more dependent on sustainable and renewable, carbon-free technologies, said Carlos M. Hernandez, chief executive officer, Fluor. Fluor has been a leader in serving the nuclear industry for more than 70 years including the design and construction support for more than 25 units, plus nearly 100 million hours of operations and maintenance work.

The NuScale small modular reactor fits well with Fluors world-class modular fabrication capabilities for new facilities of all types.

This final approval from the NRC clearly establishes NuScale as the preeminent leader in the small modular reactor technology market and positions the company to respond to customers desiring this unique, flexible, safe, clean energy solution, Hernandez said. Fluor is extremely proud of NuScales achievement, and we would like to acknowledge the continuous support of the U.S. Department of Energy, which has a long history of supporting the nuclear energy market, thereby helping to ensure long-term clean energy solutions in the U.S. and globally.

In addition to previously announced strategic partners and investors in NuScale, both Fluor and NuScale continue to engage with potential customers, capital investors, manufacturers and other supply chain partners for new SMR development efforts.

Fluor has the exclusive rights to perform engineering, procurement and construction for new NuScale projects. Notably, Fluor and NuScale are working directly with Utah Associated Municipal Power Systems (UAMPS) in the development of a 720 megawatt plant. In addition, NuScale has preliminary agreements with entities in the U.S., Canada, Romania, the Czech Republic and Jordan.
