The latest information about advanced nuclear energy is now a mouse click away.
The Gateway for Accelerated Innovation in Nuclear (GAIN) just unveiled Milestones in Advanced Nuclear, an interactive website that provides the latest news in the U.S. nuclear power industry.
GAIN is industry's gateway into the national labs. Now GAIN is also the gateway into nuclear news.
“Advanced nuclear has been building momentum over the past five years and it is getting difficult to stay current with the latest developments from all facets of our industry," GAIN Director Christine King said. “The website offers a concise description of each item, and why this milestone is important and links to the most recent news for that item."
The milestones were developed with the help of more than 100 people across the U.S. representing the nuclear energy industry, utility executives, and lawmakers.
“This website is a great tool to see our progress as an industry," said Peter Hastings, vice president of Kairos Power, an advanced nuclear reactor developer. “It is extremely helpful to show not only our company's progress but also that of other advanced reactor developers as well as the industry as a whole. This website makes it easy to see the immense opportunity advanced nuclear represents for our clean energy future.".

WASHINGTON – The U.S.
Department of Energy’s National Nuclear Security Administration (DOE/NNSA)
announced the rollout of U.S. Nuclear Nexus (http://www.anl.gov/nuclear-nexus),
a tool designed to foster timely connections between NNSA and the U.S. nuclear
industry on the global deployment of advanced nuclear technology on August 17.
Nexus will act as a single point of access for NNSA and DOE National Laboratory
recommendations, training, tools, and other relevant technical expertise and
guidance on nonproliferation.
The Gateway for Accelerated Innovation in Nuclear (GAIN) announced today that two nuclear companies will be provided GAIN Nuclear Energy (NE) Vouchers to accelerate the innovation and application of advanced nuclear technologies. NE vouchers provide advanced nuclear technology innovators with access to the extensive nuclear research capabilities and expertise available across the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) national laboratory complex. This is the third set of awards in FY 2021.
The business selected to receive GAIN nuclear energy vouchers for Round 3 FY 2021 are: Engineered Soulutions Group LLC - Brevard, NC and Vega Wave Systems, Inc. - West Chicago, IL.

In Service Inspection is a major challenge to consider for future Generation IV
Reactors safety. Therefore, a large focus of R&D work has been performed since
2010 in France for the Sodium Fast Reactor systems (SFR), mainly dedicated to
the inspection of reactor block structures, primary components and circuits, and
Power Conversion System main components (Heat Exchangers). In Service
Inspection requirements have to be taken into account since the early preconceptual design phase, then consolidated through the basic design phase with
more detailed specifications leading to increase the inspection tools ability for
immersed sodium structures of SFRs, at about 200°C (shut down conditions).
Inspection within the main vessel should be performed either with transducers
immersed in sodium (with associated in sodium robotics) and with transducers
located out of sodium medium. Nondestructive Examination, Telemetry and
Imaging are qualified with experimental in-water and then in-sodium testing, using
ultrasonic transducers. Experimental results are then compared to simulations
using French CIVA software platform results. Repair was also part of this program,
with laser system development. This webinar provides a technical overview of this
ISI&R program that involves specific international collaborations done through
GENIV mainly. Of course, it also benefits to other Gen4 systems.
