BELLEVUE, Washington – February 7, 2024 – TerraPower announced today the selection of five suppliers to support its Natrium Reactor Demonstration Project. TerraPower is currently developing the Natrium Reactor Demonstration Project in Kemmerer, Wyoming.
These award selections are integral to the development of the Natrium plant. Upon completion, the Natrium plant will be a full commercial operating plant and will bring to market clean, reliable, stable baseload energy and flexible energy storage, as well as long-term jobs to energy producing communities.
“The expertise of these suppliers and the equipment they produce are key to supporting the Natrium technology,” said Tara Neider, Senior Vice President and Project Director for the Natrium Reactor Demonstration Project. “We will continue to put strong emphasis on engaging the diversity of the nuclear supply chain as we bring the Natrium Reactor and Energy Storage System to market.”
Supplier awards include:
The Natrium technology features a 345 MWe sodium-cooled fast reactor with a molten salt-based energy storage system. The storage technology can boost the system’s output to 500 MWe for more than five and a half hours when needed. This innovative addition allows a Natrium plant to integrate seamlessly with renewable resources and leads to faster, more cost-effective decarbonization of the electric grid while producing dispatchable carbon-free energy. The Natrium demonstration plant is being constructed near a retiring coal facility.
Future Request for Proposal (RFP) opportunities for the Natrium Reactor Demonstration Project can be found on TerraPower’s website: https://www.terrapower.com/contact-us/suppliers/
The process of awarding contracts for the project is ongoing. TerraPower will continue to provide updates as additional contracts are awarded.
