The Babcock & Wilcox Company plans to deploy the B&W mPower™ reactor - a scalable, modular, passively safe, advanced light water reactor system.
The reactor features a four-year operating cycle without the need for refueling, and is designed to produce clean, zero-emission operations. Generating capacity can be added in 180 MWe increments to match our customers' load growth projections.
B&W subsidiary Babcock & Wilcox mPower, Inc. will lead the development, licensing and delivery of B&W mPower reactor projects.
Features of the B&W mPower reactor include:
The modular and scalable design of the B&W mPower reactor will meet the generation needs of our customers with the proven performance of existing light water reactor technology. Several reactor modules can be installed to support the customer requirements and infrastructure constraints.
The B&W mPower reactor will reduce risks associated with deploying nuclear power and become a flexible, cost-effective solution to the U.S. energy needs while lowering greenhouse gas emissions. Each B&W mPower reactor brought online will contribute to the reduction of approximately 57 million metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions, compared to those created by other forms of energy generation, over the life of the reactor.
The B&W organization offers production capabilities to supply all Nuclear Steam Supply System (NSSS) components, reducing manufacturing costs and streamlining construction.
