USA: nuclear reactor

New Orleans-based Entergy Corp. submitted a combined construction and operating license application to the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission, selecting GE Hitachi Nuclear Energy’s ESBWR reactor design. The 1520MW ESBWR is a passive-safety reactor design undergoing final certification review by the NRC. Entergy is seeking to reserve the option to build a potential new reactor at its River Bend Nuclear Generating Station in Louisiana, US, located along the Mississippi River in St. Francisville, about 30mi north of Baton Rouge. Entergy is among four U.S. utilities that have selected the ESBWR for a total of six potential reactor units.
