2020 (1st Round)
The following projects were selected under the Funding Opportunity Announcement titled "U.S. Industry Opportunities for Advanced Nuclear Technology Development" (DE-FOA-0001817) - 1st round of calendar year 2020 (application due date of October 31, 2019)
Tier II: Advanced Reactor Development Projects
Southern Ohio Diversification Initiative
Generic Design Support Activities for Advanced Reactors
The Southern Ohio Diversification Initiative (SODI) assembled a team to start the process of characterization, permitting, and decontamination and decommissioning (D&D) studies to support advanced reactor deployment at the Portsmouth Site. This work includes the development of an Early Site Permit (ESP) template that will envelop a broad range of advanced reactor technologies, supporting the DOE goal of commercial demonstration of an advanced reactor by the late 2020s.
Tier III: Regulatory Assistance Grants
Southern Nuclear Development, LLC
Topical Report: Guidelines for Implementing Seismic Base Isolation in Advanced Nuclear Reactors to Reduce Risk and Overnight Capital Cost
The primary objective of this project is to provide a pathway acceptable to and vetted by the USNRC that an applicant could follow to develop, document and qualify a seismic isolation system for an advanced reactor, proposed or future. The pathway will be presented in a Topical Report to be submitted to the USNRC for review. The Topical Report will be technology neutral with respect to both the reactor developer and the isolator type.
