Safety underpins any nuclear project. In its latest webinar, Core Power says its nuclear reactor for ships will change the risk profile of nuclear from low risk/high impact to very low risk/very low impact. It plans to achieve this through the modular reactor’s...
Nuclear could see the industry move away from the slow-steaming, 20,000-TEU sized container ships, to both fewer and much smaller and faster ships. A potentially disruptive technology, says Core Power, but also the only decarbonisation option that could actually make...
The US Department of Energy’s Nuclear Energy University Program (NEUP) has granted research funds to the MIT Energy Initiative, Core Power, and the Idaho National Laboratory for a three-year study into the development of offshore floating nuclear power generation in...
Core Power has shown how “green fuel” for shipping can be produced reliably at low cost using a floating nuclear power plant design combined with an ammonia refinery at either end of green corridors. Such corridors were proposed in the Clydebank...
With modern advancements in fuel management, reactor safety, and manufacturing, some new-nuclear reactors are looking increasingly viable for use in marine applications. However, certain criteria exist for applications in the marine environment that nuclear reactors...
