NuScale Power and partners target clean hydrogen production for small modular reactor plants

NuScale Power, Shell Global Solutions (Shell) and industry participants will develop and assess a concept for an Integrated Energy System (IES) for hydrogen production using electricity and process heat from a NuScale VOYGR™ small modular reactor (SMR) power plant.

The project, entitled ‘Development and Demonstration of a Concept for an Economically Optimised IES’, will be completed in two phases. Additional research participants include Idaho National Laboratory, Utah Associated Municipal Power Systems (UAMPS), Fuel Cell Energy, FPoliSolutions, and GSE Solutions.

NuScale believes its flexible SMR technology holds the potential to balance and stabilise power grids dominated by renewable energies through hydrogen production.

Its NuScale Power Module™ (NPM) pressurised water reactor can generate 77MW of electricity (MWe) and can be scaled to meet customer needs, while its 12-module VOYGR™-12 power plant is capable of generating 924 MWe. NuScale also offers four-module VOYGR-4 (308 MWe) and six-module VOYGR-6 (462 MWe) power plants, as well as other configurations based on customer needs.
