What is the NuScale SMR design and how will it be developed within INL boundaries?

NuScale has designed and developed a small modular reactor (SMR) to produce electrical energy while at the same time using mass produced parts that are faster to replicate, replace and more inexpensive. Plans are currently underway for the implementation of NuScale's SMRs at DOE's Idaho site. Because there are so many details to cover regarding this new project we have dedicated an entire FAQ section to INL's SMR initiative that is available here.
