X-Energy SMR Development

Working with British suppliers for early deployment

X-Energy Reactor Company and 70 British engineering, construction, and manufacturing companies joined X-Energy for a program of presentations and meetings in Bristol. The goal was to answer how to deliver a fleet of Xe-100 small modular reactors (SMR) in the United Kingdom to address the challenges of energy security and decarbonization. The technology is more compact than traditional nuclear plants with factory-built components easily assembled onsite. The reactors are designed to be capable of producing both electricity and higher temperature heat and steam than conventional “small modular reactors” and can supply electricity and heat for hydrogen production and subsidize fossil fuel-generated heat for industrial processes.
