Instance BV designing range of scaled-down nuclear plants



Architecture studio Instance BV is collaborating with power company GE Hitachi to design a series of small nuclear power plants to be built across North America, Europe and Asia.
Instance BV is providing "architectural input" for GE Hitachi's BWRX-300 small modular reactors (SMRs), which are scaled-down versions of traditional nuclear power plants.
SMRs could help achieve decarbonisation
The small power plants are being developed by GE Hitachi, which is a collaboration between American corporation General Electric and Japanese company Hitachi, to offer a cost-competitive way to create electricity using nuclear reactors.
According to GE Hitachi, Instance BV has been advising on configurations and layouts for potential sites of these plants and visualising them in high-definition renders.

SMRs also allow for greater scalability, flexibility and enhanced safety compared to large-scale nuclear plants, due to their smaller size.
Plants will use boiling water reactors 
When built, GE Hitachi's BWRX-300 SMRs will utilise the company's boiling water reactor (BWR) technology.
This involves using a nuclear fission reactor to heat water and produce steam, which is then passed through a turbine to produce electricity. The stea...
