U.S. Entrepreneur Offers Small Module Reactors to India

Dr. Kris Singh, the Indian-American founder and CEO of New Jersey-based SMR LLC and Holtec International offered mini nuclear reactors to India.

“The new generation small nuclear reactor uses light water technology to produce 160 MW and is the future of nuclear energy because of its unconditional safety and economy,” Singh told the Press Trust of India in a recent interview. These reactors require only a few acres of land, and because they air cooled they can be installed in a desert, unlike traditional reactors which require huge amounts of water for cooling purposes, reports NDTV.

Holtec Asia, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Holtec International, recently constructed a facility in Dahej, Gujarat, to develop components for the Small Modular Nuclear Reactor (SMR-160). Singh added that this facility would initially export critical nuclear facility components including air cooled condensers, spent fuel storage, among others to U.S.A. and other countries.
