RWT Growth and StarCore Nuclear Canada have announced a partnership to bring low cost, clean nuclear energy to remote locations and industries that rely on less environmentally friendly sources power, such as diesel generators. StarCore said the deal represents a benchmark investment both in terms of scale and innovation. StarCore Nuclear Canada utilises technology similar to that which has long been used aboard nuclear submarines or large warships. In 50 years, it has seen no major incidents, making this a safe and clean choice of, the company said. For remote towns, such as those in Canada currently relying on damaging diesel generators to power their communities, using this technology is a highly beneficial, more sustainable option. StarCore Nuclear Canada is a Generation IV High Temperature Gas Reactor technology that has been designed, optimised and patented for the purpose of providing small-scale, safe, low cost and low CO2-emission power production in remote locations.
