Costain is collaborating with U-Battery Developments – the firm behind a modular reactor design – to develop an advanced modular reactor (AMR). The work is funded by the Department of Business as part of the Energy and Industrial Strategy’s Energy Innovation Portfolio, and it also forms part of Costain’s climate change strategy. The initial scope of Costain’s involvement is a feasibility study to develop the modular reactor design and incorporate philosophies such as modularisation, modern methods of construction (MMC) and design for manufacture and assembly (DfMA). U-Battery (the reactor) aims to be operational by 2028 and will provide a flexible source of clean, low-carbon, electrical power or process heat (or a combination of both) to serve customers including energy intensive industrial applications and remote communities.
