Delivering Nuclear Power Where It’s Needed

Westinghouse is Supporting the Next Cool Thing in Nuclear‍. Imagine a remote outpost in an arctic region, the Northern Lights fluttering in the distant night sky, and important work taking place in and around the facility. Currently, the most likely way this laboratory or industrial operation or military base can be powered and heated is through transported diesel fuel—both expensive and polluting, or a grid-based coal-fired plant if nearer a coastal region, also polluting. Westinghouse and Prodigy are designing a solution for the constant demands for electricity and heat in these types of harsh, remote climates: a Transportable Nuclear Power Plant (TNPP) featuring an eVinci™ microreactor from Westinghouse.‍‍‍

Prodigy Speaks to Global Outlook on Floating Nuclear Power Plants (FNPPs) at the IAEA

On November 14, 2023 in Vienna, Prodigy President and CEO Mathias Trojer presented to an audience of regulators, utilities, shipbuilders, SMR technology developers, governments, and other member state representatives, at the International Atomic Energy Agency’s (IAEA’s) first International Symposium on Floating Nuclear Power Plants (FNPPs). The event was eagerly anticipated by attendees who represented different elements of a rapidly growing global interest in the development and deployment of marine-based Small Modular Reactor (SMR) power plants.‍ At the IAEA Symposium, presentations featured FNPP front-runners worldwide, and spoke to the benefits of these technologies to enhance the contribution of nuclear energy toward achieving global net zero targets.‍
