AMR webinar series: Lead-cooled fast reactors

27 October 2020, 1.00 PM - 27 October 2020, 2.00 PM

Paolo Ferroni, Westinghouse


Tuesday 27th October, 1-2pm

The Westinghouse Electric Company, a world leader in the development and commercialization of nuclear power plants, is developing a next-generation, medium-capacity nuclear power plant based on lead-cooled fast reactor (LFR) technology. The Westinghouse LFR is a ~450 MWe, highly simplified, passively safe, compact and scalable reactor plant. The talk will be delivered by Dr Paolo Ferroni, the Westinghouse Lead Fast Reactor Technical Lead within Advanced Reactor Development.


Registration and hosting of the webinar is via the Institute of Physics: 

Advanced Modular Reactor Webinar Series

The UK Government has recently announced a £40m investment to bring forward next generation nuclear energy technology. These “Advanced Modular Reactors” (AMRs) have the potential to unlock new applications for nuclear technology in the carbon-neutral economy of the future – going beyond grid electricity to include the supply of heat, production of Hydrogen, power to communities and industries in remote parts of the world and supporting intermittent renewable supply by storing energy.

In this series of webinars we will hear from the companies developing the technology – the three projects selected for BEIS funding and Moltex Energy who are forging ahead with first deployment in Canada.

You can register for the other webinars in this series via the Advanced Modular Reactor series registration link.
