THREE partners have joined forces in Canada to demonstrate a 15 MW small modular reactor that would provide power and heat to industry and remote communities. The Micro Modular Reactor (MMR) project was initiated in 2019 and now a joint venture has been formed by the project partners Global First Power, Ultra Safe Nuclear Corporation, and Ontario Power. The venture, known as the Global First Power Limited Partnership, aims to build a demonstration reactor at the Chalk River Laboratories site in Ontario owned by Atomic Energy of Canada. If successful, the plan is to license the technology for use across Canada to help reduce the use of fossil fuels for heat and power.
