BWRX-300 is a new generation boiling water reactor with a power generation capacity of 300 MW.

Jay Wileman, President and CEO of GEH, said: “We are honoured that our SMR technology has been selected by Fermi Energia to help Estonia fulfil its energy security and climate goals. This technology selection further validates the BWRX-300 as the leading SMR solution. By leveraging a unique combination of existing fuel, plant simplifications, proven components, and a design based on an already licensed reactor, the BWRX-300 offers cost-competitive, zero carbon emission generation in a meaningful timeframe.”
