2021 (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 2021 (application due date of May 28, 2021).
Tier II: Advanced Reactor Development Projects
The Nuclear Alternative Project
Sugar Land, TX
Phase 2 - Site Suitability Study for Small Modular Reactors and Microreactors in Puerto Rico
Under this proposal The Nuclear Alternative Project will evaluate the general site suitability for small modular reactors and microreactors in Puerto Rico. Results of the study will support DOEs mission to commercialize these technologies in small island and/or remote locations.
Terrestrial Energy USA Inc.
Off-Gas Modeling and Uncertainty Propagation to Support Molten Salt Reactor Licensing
Under this proposal, Terrestrial Energy USA Inc. will develop an approach to handling uncertainty in the modeling of off-gas systems of molten salt reactors. The team will use available Nuclear Energy Advanced Modeling and Simulation program tools developed by DOE and will apply this methodology to the company’s Integral Molten Salt Reactor design.
American Bureau of Shipping
Accelerating Commercial Maritime Demonstration Projects for Advanced Nuclear Reactor Technologies
Under this proposal, American Bureau of Shipping will focus on addressing hurdles in the maritime domain so that new reactor technology can be rapidly deployed for commercial applications. Advanced nuclear technology is well-positioned to be one of the strongest tools available to help the industry achieve its aggressive decarbonization goals.
General Atomics Electromagnetic Systems
San Diego, CA
On the Path to a Nuclear Fuel Digital Twin: Modeling and Simulation of Silicon Carbide Cladding for Accelerated Fuel Qualification
Under this proposal, General Atomics Electromagnetic Systems will deliver a constitutive model, based on physics, for its silicon carbide-based fuel for high-temperature gas reactors. The new tool will be benchmarked against commercially available models and experimental data to demonstrate to regulators how the fuel behaves under all conditions in a reactor.
General Atomics Electromagnetic Systems Abstract
Tier III: Regulatory Assistance Grants
Advanced Modeling and Simulation to Characterize Advanced BWR Source Terms to Support a Regulatory Approval Pathway for Right-Sized Emergency Planning Zone
Under this proposal, Pittsburgh Technical will support the development of improved modeling and simulation capabilities for advanced boiling water reactors by improving existing fission product transport and deposition models. This will support right-sized emergency planning zones for advanced reactors.
