Concurrent Technologies Corp. has received an initial contract to manufacture a prototype steam generator technology for NuScale Power at the CTC-operated Center for Advanced Nuclear Manufacturing.

NuScale said Wednesday CTC will produce helical coil steam generators that serve as a key component of the Fluor-backed venture’s small modular reactor nuclear design under certification review by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

“We are excited to begin this important work and demonstrate the quality and efficiency advanced manufacturing can bring to this new energy technology,” said CTC President and CEO Ed Sheehan.

The company aims to demonstrate processes to build straight tubes, prototype final helical geometry for tube bending and assemble bundled tube under the phase first of project.

The U.S. Nuclear Infrastructure Council selected CTC to manage the CANM in efforts to help the nuclear industry develop advanced manufacturing technologies.
