Safe, affordable, and sustainable zero-carbon electricity

IDOM and NB Power signed a 1 + 1 year agreement for the delivery of professional services to provide expertise in the development of Advanced Small Modular Reactors (SMRs) in New Brunswick, building and maintaining relationships with the province and Indigenous communities.

The overall goal is the transition to safe, affordable, and sustainable zero-carbon electricity to meet future energy needs while reducing greenhouse gas emissions and replacing fossil fuel-fired generation.

In 2018, Natural Resources Canada brought together representatives from interested provinces, territories, and utilities to discuss the opportunity for Canada to lead the emerging domestic and global markets for SMRs. NB Power, along with the New Brunswick Department of Energy and Mines, participated in a SMR Plan-Canadian Roadmap exercise. NB Power invested in two novel GEN-IV reactors: ARC Clean Technology and Moltex Energy Canada.

IDOM NS, with presence in Canada since 2019 is ranked as the 8th engineering firm worldwide with expertise not only in conventional nuclear power plants but also in the design and development of novel GEN-IV technologies.

IDOM will provide expertise with staff embedded into the Advance Reactor Development technical group of NB Power covering among others, the following tasks:

  • Provide technical expertise as a Subject Matter Expert (SME) for the SMR design integration team.
  • Collaboration with, and oversight of, SMR vendors and consultants.
  • Support to the site interface work (NB Power submitted an Environmental Impact Assessment and Licence to prepare site in June 2023).
  • Provide technical assessment on constructability, reliability, maintainability, operability, physical security by design, and human factors.
  • Provide mentorship to younger, less experienced team members.
