Designed to provide an unfailingly safe and secure source of clean energy from nuclear fission, SMR-160 incorporates passive features of its operation to ensure utmost safety and reliability. All safety systems are within containment making them secure from external threats.
Major features of SMR-160 include its small footprint (4.5 acres), minuscule site boundary dose, large inventory of coolant in the reactor vessel and its modularity – allowing project owners the freedom to effectively build the number of units to meet current and future demand.
SMR-160 include its cutting-edge capability to operate using air cooling system in lieu of the large quantity of cooling water. With the flexibility to use air cooled condensers, SMR-160 can be deployed in the most arid regions of the world.
