Building on the strengths of two industry leaders, Generation mPower LLC is a company formed between affiliates of BWX Technologies, Inc. (BWXT) and Bechtel Power Corporation (Bechtel).
BWXT's expertise in nuclear engineering and manufacturing combined with BWXT mPower™ reactor technology and Bechtel's plant engineering, procurement and construction capability create a progressive energy solution to meet the need of today's changing power generation industry.
As a more practical clean energy option for power generation, the 195 megawatt mPower small modular reactor development program has gained wide recognition for its substantial electric utility involvement, cost competitiveness and innovative design.
Within the shifting landscape of global energy markets, Generation mPower nuclear plants will deliver a solution designed for today's regulatory, policy and financial realities.
On April 15, 2013, mPower and the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) signed a Cooperative Agreement for funding made available through DOE’s Small Modular Reactor (SMR) Licensing Technical Support Program for the development and licensing of BWXT's mPower™ technology.
At a time when energy demands are evolving and environmental concerns growing, there is a global imperative to provide affordable energy sources that are efficient and clean. Generation mPower LLC is responding to the challenge.
