Is our Idaho site being used as a test site? If so, are the risks higher for us than for future sites?
No. NuScale has conducted testing of various reactor systems since 2003 at NuScale’s integrated testing facility in Corvallis, Oregon. This facility is a one-third scale prototype of a NuScale SMR. The selected Idaho location for the SMR will NOT be a demonstration site. The design of the SMR will be thoroughly reviewed and certified by the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, which sets the world standard for defining rigorous safety requirements.
