GSE Systems, Inc. (“GSE” or “the Company”) (NYSE Amex: GVP), a global energy services solutions provider, today announced that it has been selected to provide a real-time, high-fidelity engineering simulator for the B&W mPower™ Small Modular Reactor (SMR) design. The simulator will be used as a platform for validation of plant system designs and the development of control and logic strategies, and serve as a key part of the human factors engineering program.
Generation mPower LLC is working to fully develop and deploy the B&W mPower™ reactor technology. The reactor is a First-of-a-Kind (FOAK), scalable, modular, passively safe, advanced light water system. The B&W mPower™ reactor is being designed to provide 160 MWe of clean, zero-emissions energy for four years of operation without refueling.
Jim Eberle, Chief Executive Officer of GSE, commented, “This agreement with B&W solidifies GSE’s position as the industry leader in providing high-fidelity engineering simulation for FOAK reactor designs. Our flexible platform helps mitigate risk by allowing customers to verify and validate systems and processes at the design stage, when changes can be made more easily and cost-effectively than during plant construction. GSE and B&W will work together beyond this initial phase to expand the scope of the simulator and synchronize throughout the design process.”
Mr. Eberle concluded, “We view the application of our high-fidelity simulation in the engineering phase as a natural, and increasingly necessary, extension of its use in existing nuclear and non-nuclear energy facilities. This agreement represents our ongoing efforts to diversify our business model, and leverage GSE’s benchmark technical and human assets.”ABOUT GSE SYSTEMS, INC .
