Bucharest, May 24 – 25. We are grateful for having attended the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signing ceremony between Nuscale (US) and Nuclearelectrica (Romania), concerning the installation of a new small modular reactor in Doicești, Romania.

The MoU establishes that NuScale, Nuclearelectrica and E-INFRA will carry out engineering studies, technical analyses and licensing activities for the site of a former thermal power plant for Romania’s first small modular reactor.

Founded in 2007, NuScale is headquartered in Portland, Oregon, (United States). Its mission is to provide scalable advanced nuclear technology by creating an energy source that is smarter, cleaner, safer, and cost competitive.

NuScale has developed small modular reactor (SMR) nuclear technology to supply energy for electrical generation, district heating, desalination, commercial-scale hydrogen production and other process heat applications.

Nuclearelectrica is a state owned company based in Bucharest, Romania since 1998. Its main activities are centered on the generation of electrical, thermal power and nuclear fuel, managing the nuclear plants Cernavoda Units 1 and 2 and FCN – Pitesti, the Nuclear Fuel Plant producing nuclear fuel for Cernavoda.

Thanks to this new agreement Romania will be one of the first countries to implement the innovative and safe technology of Small Modular Reactors.

Congratulations to Romania for setting an important starting point in the Energy transition and thanks to Nuscale and Nucleareletrica for contributing to the world transition to clean energy with a small environmental footprint.

Our Group is available to provide expertise and solutions in the nuclear field. We would be extremely happy to take part in the very firsts small modular reactor projects” said Luca Tosto, Managing Director of Walter Tosto SpA.
