SEATTLE — Seattle-based Extremely Secure Nuclear Company and Lappeenranta-Lahti College of Expertise (LUT) in Lappeenranta, Finland as we speak signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to additional look at deployment of the Extremely Secure Nuclear Micro-Modular™ Reactor (MMR®) as a analysis and check reactor in metropolis of Lappeenranta at or close to the College’s campus. The reactor might be operated as a coaching, analysis and check facility and can hook up with the district heating community of Lappeenrannan Energia, the municipally owned vitality firm offering carbon-free district heating to the college, metropolis and surrounding space.

A number one vitality analysis college, LUT analysis helps the world’s transition to carbon neutrality in all societal and industrial sectors. The MMR analysis and check reactor will check new applied sciences to decarbonize vitality manufacturing, microgrid integration, and assist prepare the long run workforce by way of hands-on expertise with a next-generation high-temperature gas-cooled microreactor.
“The work LUT is doing in transitioning to a carbon-neutral world is essential and the MMR is the right analysis and coaching facility to advance their data and expertise, particularly in the case of decarbonizing district heating programs,” stated Francesco Venneri, CEO and Founding father of Extremely Secure Nuclear.
Based on the World Nuclear Affiliation, district heating is extensively utilized in Finland however is basically fueled by fossil fuels reminiscent of peat and coal, which is to be phased out by 2029. At 15 MW to 30 MW of thermal vitality, the MMR is sufficiently small to be situated close to district heating masses. The unrivaled security of the MMR and its Absolutely Ceramic Micro-encapsulated (FCM®) gas imply homeowners and regulators can web site these MMR Vitality Methods with confidence.
“The protection and design of the MMR makes partnering with Extremely Secure Nuclear the best selection for LUT and for Finland as we work towards decarbonized municipal and industrial warmth provide and a carbon-neutral world,” stated Juhani Hyvärinen, Professor of Modelling in Nuclear Engineering at LUT.
