As industry needs evolve, nuclear fuel providers are being called upon to deliver more without compromising safety or reliability. The ability to innovate in the nuclear industry is more critical than ever as the landscape in which we operate continues to shift more rapidly each day. Today’s utilities require the lowest fuel cycle costs possible, increased operational flexibility, higher burnup capability to generate more power with fewer bundles, diversity of supply, accident-tolerant products that provide resilience and survivability, in addition to robust and leak-free fuel performance.
To meet these challenges, Westinghouse is developing advanced fuel technologies, practices and methods that enhance our ability to produce and service nuclear fuel and provide greater insight into core performance.
Our advanced fuel portfolio includes innovations such as EnCore® Fuel, TRITON11™ fuel, AXIOM™ fuel rod cladding, PRIME™ fuel advanced features and ADOPT® fuel. Westinghouse has designed each of these programs to complement our reactor and facility offerings.
