GEH Announced Progress On BWRX-300 Vendor Design Review In Canada

US-based GE Hitachi Nuclear Energy (GEH) has submitted the first documents for its BWRX-300 small modular reactor (SMR) design to the vendor design review (VDR) process of the Canadian nuclear regulator, a statement by the US company said.

The statement said the submitted documentation to the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission is for the combined phase 1 and 2 of the review and addresses eight of the 19 VDR focus areas, including general plant description, control system and facilities, research and development, and design process.

In May 2019, GEH initiated the VDR in Canada for the BWRX-300. The review will focus on identifying any issues that could become fundamental barriers in a licensing process for a possible new-build project in Canada.

GEH said the VDR is an optional service by the CNSC to provide early feedback during the design process. The objective is to verify whether a plant design meets Canadian nuclear regulatory requirements at a pre-licensing stage.
