Sheffield Forgemasters Intl. Ltd. will forge a large, civil nuclear reactor vessel head by the end of this year, as part of a project to develop production technologies for NuScale Power LLC’s small modular reactor (SMR) design.

The New Opportunity in Nuclear Power

A small modular reactor technology is challenging the paradox of cost and opportunity, and one notable forger is on board The method of choice An Integral Pressurized Water Reactor Now, develop the techniques

Nuclear power is a paradox. It is “clean” energy because it results in no carbon dioxide emissions, and yet it presents a different environmental concern, involving disposal of spent fuel. That’s a decades-old problem that’s considered less concerning, in view of the world’s expanding need for light, heat, and power.

Then there is the paradox of cost: nuclear energy is generally considered affordable, because it’s not susceptible shortages as oil and gas may be, though the d
