Proven. Innovative. Simplified.
Discover how our breakthrough BWRX-300 innovation, coupled with a proven design, can reduce cost and risk.
Powered by commercially available fuel, the BWRX-300 features an innovative and simplified configuration, resulting in less concrete and steel needed for construction. The BWRX-300 is a cost- competitive solution that can be deployed for electricity generation and industrial applications, including hydrogen production, desalination, and district heating. It features up to 60% less capital cost per MW when compared with a typical water-cooled SMR, and using a combination of modular and open-top construction techniques, the BWRX-300 can be constructed in 24-36 months while achieving an approximate 90% volume reduction in plant layout.
Zero-carbon solutions—such as nuclear power—can contribute to a more decarbonized energy future. Nuclear power offers tremendous potential to help cut carbon emissions with the speed and scale the world requires.
GEH offers two standard fuel configurations for BWRs in addition to being on the vanguard of developing fuel for the next generation of nuclear reactors.
The President of the National Atomic Energy Agency has confirmed to ORLEN Synthos Green Energy (OSGE) that the design of GE Hitachi’s BWRX-300 SMR reactor meets nuclear safety requirements.
Tennessee Valley Authority, Ontario Power Generation and Synthos Green Energy have jointly invested in the development of GE Hitachi’s SMR technology.
