It might take a decade or so to get the first one online, but SaskPower has chosen the reactor design for its first nuclear reactor ever. The announcement was made on June 27.

Following a thorough assessment of several Small Modular Reactor (SMR) technologies, SaskPower has selected the GE-Hitachi BWRX-300 for potential deployment in Saskatchewan in the mid-2030s.
