The purpose of the System Requirements for Alternative Nuclear Technologies (ANT) project was to capture the high level technical performance characteristics and business-case parameters of small thermal plants, which will be of value to the potential future of the UK’s energy system. The project included small nuclear reactors, enabling comparison with other small-scale plants, such as those powered by bio-mass. The project outputs will help enable the subsequent contrast of a range of specific technologies.
Call for Proposal - This project’s purpose is to create a high level functional requirements specification for a small generic nuclear plant with an output of up to 300 MWe. This specification will be between 25 and 35 pages long and will be split equally between functional requirements and business case requirements
