NuScale’s first small modular reactor simulator opened in Romania

The first simulator of the control room of the small modular reactor VOYGR of the American company NuScale was opened at the Polytechnic University of the Romanian capital Bucharest. The simulator is the fifth in a row but the first outside the US.

This first International Energy Research Center (E2 Center) will help Romania develop next-generation advanced nuclear technology experts and operators and become a hub for the deployment of small modular reactors in Europe.

NuScale Power said.

In 2021, the American company and the state-owned Nuclearelectrica Corporation signed an agreement to deploy the 462 megawatt VOYGR-6 NPP in Romania by the end of the decade.

According to Nuclearelectrica, the plant will create nearly 200 permanent jobs, 1,500 people will work during construction, 2,300 in production and will help Romania avoid emitting 4 million tons of CO2 into the atmosphere annually.
