Small modular reactors are fast becoming a reality and Fortum has been at the forefront of studying them with our R&D programme going back to 2013. In the recent years, we have advanced from research to supporting client projects, using our extensive knowhow and expertise. Beside deep understanding of SMR's, our nuclear experts are also veterans in multiple newbuilds around the world, nuclear safety and many other fields, critical to understanding these new reactor types.

Whether you need support with realising your plans for SMR newbuild, a better understanding of what the markets and opportunities for SMR's are or support in the analysis of the new safety systems of these plants, our experts are here to support you.
