Rosatom – Technologies and Solutions for SMRs

Artem Larionov of Rosatom Overseas told the last webinar organised by European Nuclear Society that R&D work on fuel for the first-of-a-kind (FOAK) plant has begun.

The reactor technology will be based on Russia’s RITM-200 plant, an advanced pressurised water reactor (PWR) unit which is already operational on three new-generation icebreakers.

Russia has also developed an in-depth conceptual design for its first land-based small modular reactor with commercial operation scheduled for 2027.
