Chris Colbert – Portland, Oregon-based chief strategy officer and CFO at NuScale Power – joins IJGlobal editorial director Angus Leslie Melville for today’s podcast to talk about nuclear energy.
The latest in the Infra Dig podcast series, sees discussion centre on small modular reactors – SMRs – a subject that NuScale Power is more than qualified to discuss given it will have its first unit operational before the end of this decade… and if you want one sooner, Chris reckons he could line you up with one before then!
As things stand, the first NuScale SMR power plant will be in Idaho Falls as a front-runner for the Carbon Free Power Project (CFPP), an initiative spearheaded by the public power consortium Utah Associated Municipal Power Systems (UAMPS).
The NuScale Power Module will start generating power in Utah in 2029, with the remaining modules coming online for full plant operation by 2030.
This is an exciting company at the forefront of a revolution in baseload, low-carbon energy generation and Chris has a lot to say on the matter…
