 NuScale Power, LLC (NuScale) and the Romanian company RoPower Nuclear SA (RoPower) announced the signing of the contract for small modular reactor (SMR) power plant in Romania, noted in the press release

The FEED works that the NuScale company will start will define the main and specific site characteristics for a VOYGR-6 SMR power plant that could be developed on the site of the Doicești power plant in Romania. The eight-month project includes issuing subcontracts to carry out environmental impact assessment and subsurface geotechnical investigation, site assessment and site-specific requirements for standard NuScale plant design, and development of a project-specific cost estimate.

First unveiled by President Biden as part of his Global Infrastructure and Investment Partnership in June 2022, the start of this work represents landmark progress between NuScale and Nuclearelectrica, aimed at developing the first SMRs in Europe to help meet regional security goals energy and decarbonization.

The start of this phase 1 work follows the signing in June 2022 of a Memorandum of Understanding between NuScale and Nuclearelectrica to begin engineering studies, technical reviews and permitting and licensing activities for the project.
