About this event

This talk given by John Earp is based on a report prepared for the IMechE  which evaluated Small Modular Reactor (SMR) designs. SMR are reactors with a rating less than 300MW(e) and are generally characterised by being a sealed unit with passive safety systems. In addition, many of the designs feature the reactor vessel being positioned below ground, so enhancing their safety and security profile.
