Argentina is developing a small modular reactor Carem with increased power.
Adriana Cristina Serquis, President of the National Atomic Energy Commission of Argentina (CNEA), told reporters about this.
The new project will have a power of 100 to 120 MWe. The modular design will make it possible to assemble power plants of various power on its basis, the head of the CNEA specified.
This is the first and only operating pressurized boiling reactor with natural coolant circulation in the country.
Four candidate sites are currently being explored.
Small Modular Reactors Day was an international platform for discussing the benefits of SMR.
Hero of the day
Unit 3 of the Karachi nuclear power plant in Pakistan was successfully connected to the gird on March 4, laying a solid foundation for its commercial operation.
