Ultra Safe Nuclear, Hyundai Engineering, SK Ecoplant Sign MOU For Clean Hydrogen Production

The title of this post, is the same as that of this press release from Ultra Safe Nuclear Corporation.

These are the first two paragraphs.

Ultra Safe Nuclear Corporation, the U.S.-based global leader in the deployment of fourth-generation gas-cooled microreactors, Hyundai Engineering (Representative Director Hong Hyun-sung) and SK ecoplant (Representative Director Park Kyung-il) are teaming up to conduct research and development for carbon-free hydrogen production. The three companies signed an MOU on Thursday, April 20th for the construction of a “Hydrogen Micro Hub” at the SK ecoplant headquarters in Seoul’s Jongno-gu.

The “Hydrogen Micro Hub” is a facility that produces hydrogen by applying a high-temperature electrolysis process of solid oxide electrolysis cells (SOEC) to the electricity and high-temperature steam generated by USNC’s Micro-Modular™ Reactor (MMR®). This is a carbon-free hydrogen production method that extracts hydrogen by decomposing water with electricity generated from nuclear power.

Ultra Safe Nuclear Corporation has a web site.

  • Ultra Safe Nuclear Corporation, is a U.S. corporation headquartered in Seattle.
  • Canada appears to be deeply involved.
  • Innovate UK appears to have dished out a grant.
  • They appear to have sold five of their MMRs.

The company could be a serious competitor in the market for small modular nuclear reactors.
