DOE picks GE Hitachi for nuclear reactor research program
The U.S. Department of Energy has selected GE Hitachi Nuclear Energy to lead a research and development project to support advanced reactor technology development. GEH will receive a multi-million dollar federal investment to develop an updated safety assessment of the company’s PRISM sodium-cooled fast nuclear reactor. The research investment is part of a program through which DOE partners with industry in developing next generation nuclear power technology that has the potential to achieve advances in safety, efficiency and economics. The funding will enable GEH and Argonne National Laboratory to partner in developing and modernizing next-generation probabilistic risk assessment methodologies for PRISM.
