NuScale looks for fabrication partners

NuScale Power announced Aug. 17 that it will begin its selection of fabrication partners for the NuScale Power Module with NuFAB. NuFAB will be a one-day, invitation only event for potential supply chain partners on November 3, 2016 in Atlanta, Georgia.

The purpose of the event is to kick-off the selection process for qualified and capable manufacturers who can participate in fabrication of the NuScale Power Module. The event will inform potential module fabrication partners of the selection process and will provide key information with respect to supplier and partner expectations.

NuScale has been working for more than a decade to develop the next generation of small, clean, and safe nuclear power, known as small modular reactors (SMRs).

At NuFAB, potential fabrication partners will get a first-hand look at the technology and access to engineers and company leaders advancing SMRs to help understand the manufacturing capabilities needed to bring NuScale’s design to reality. The program will include presentations and Q&A by NuScale executives, procurement staff, quality assurance, and engineering.

The event will be held in Atlanta at a venue to be determined. All day conference and meeting events are scheduled for November 3, 2016, preceded by a reception on the evening of November 2, 2016. For information on obtaining an invitation to this event, send an email to
