UK Costain announces SMR collaboration with U-Battery

British construction and engineering group Costain is collaborating with U-Battery Developments Ltd to develop an advanced modular reactor which is being funded by the UK Department of Business.

The company said the work is in support of the government’s £12bn 10-point plan for carbon reduction to develop new nuclear energy solutions to help achieve the UK’s net zero carbon target.

The initial scope of Costain’s work is to advise on the engineering design of the modular, offsite construction and installation methods that will ultimately mean the SMR can be competitively priced and deployed locally to meet demand.
