By adopting the passive safety * feature in the 110MWe integral reactor, safety has been greatly enhanced.
Can be used for multiple purposes, including seawater desalination and district heating, and is particularly appropriate for usage in countries that have difficulties in setting up a single centralized power grid.
Development of the SMART reactor, a project being jointly pursued by South Korea and Saudi Arabia, was initiated in 1997,
with the pre-project engineering work having been carried out during the period of 2015 to 2018.
Currently, we are working to obtain the Standard Design Approval for the reactor.
Once the Standard Design Approval has been acquired, construction of the initial SMART reactor will start in earnest.

The SMR refers to a small nuclear reactor, which has a power output of no more than 300Mwe and features that give it a clear advantage over conventional nuclear reactors found in large-capacity power plants. Such advantages include enhanced safety and greater flexibility with regard to the possible installation sites and power output, which is why the SMR is receiving worldwide attention these days as a viable alternative energy source to rely on to achieve carbon reduction.
