NuScale Power Unveils Name of Flagship SMR Plants as Company Approaches to Commercialization


PORTLAND, Oregon – (COMMERCIAL THREAD) – NuScale Power today unveiled the official name of its Small Modular Reactor (SMR) power plants – VOYGRâ„¢. NuScale is at the frontier of energy innovation and the name VOYGR demonstrates that NuScale is changing the world by creating a smarter, cleaner, safer and more competitive source of energy. NuScale VOYGR-12 flagship scalable powerhouse design accommodates up to 12 NuScale power modulesâ„¢ (NPM), resulting in a total gross generation of 924 megawatts of electricity (MWe). NuScale also offers smaller scalable power plant solutions, the four-module VOYGR-4 (308 MWe) and the six-module VOYGR-6 (462 MWe), which are backed by the rigorous safety case of NuScale technology. Company Power Module â„¢ SMR. The first VOYGR plant will be operational by the end of the decade.

As the first and only SMR to receive design approval from the United States Nuclear Regulatory Commission, VOYGR plants are a scalable power plant solution incorporating a fully passive safety system design, improved accessibility and reliability. extended flexibility for various electrical and process heat applications. NuScale’s VOYGR SMR plants are unmatched with features and capabilities not found in today’s nuclear power plants for customers seeking carbon-free and highly reliable power for critical infrastructure and industrial processes.

“I am extremely pleased to announce the name of our small modular reactor power plants, VOYGR, which will accelerate our world’s transition to a clean economy while fighting climate change,” said John Hopkins, Chief Executive Officer by NuScale Power. “We are committed to changing the energy that changes the world, and the name VOYGR represents our revolutionary plant technology that sets a new standard for clean, reliable and safe energy. ”

NuScale continues to maintain a strong program momentum towards commercialization of its SMR technology, including supply chain development, standard factory design finalization, factory delivery activity planning, as well as the start-up and commissioning plans. NuScale will be ready to deliver the first VOYGR plant to the Carbon Free Power Project (CFPP), an initiative led by the public consortium Utah Associated Municipal Power Systems (UAMPS) by the end of the decade. NuScale continues to partner with national and international entities to explore the deployment of NuScale’s SMR technology as a long-term solution to deliver reliable, secure, affordable and operationally flexible carbon-free energy for a variety of applications.
