COULD NUCLEAR PROPULSION TRANSFORM MARITIME WITH MORE RELIABLE, EMISSIONS-FREE AND LONGER-LIVED SHIPS?

Nuclear power could transform the maritime industry with emissions-free shipping, whilst extending the life cycle of vessels and removing the uncertainty of fuel and refuelling infrastructure development, but regulation and safety considerations must be addressed for its widespread commercial adoption. With many safety, regulatory and business model hurdles to overcome, this presentation will assess the opportunity presented by nuclear for commercial maritime given its proven track record in naval applications, pointing to the role of new small modular reactors (SMRs) in bringing to market suitable low-maintenance reactors to meet the propulsion and energy requirements of commercial ships, both from a green standpoint and from a public perspective.
