System-integrated Modular Advanced ReacTor

  • SMART is a small sized integral reactor that generates a rated thermal power of 330MW . It can produce 100MW of electricity, or 90 MW of electricity and 40,000 tons of desalinated water concurrently.

  • After the endeavored effort of 15-year development, SMART obtained Standard Design Approval (SDA) on July 4th of 2012 from the Korean nuclear regulatory authority. SMART is the first licensed integral reactor in the world. SMART will open the small reactor era with greatly enhanced safety, competitive economics and diversified utilizations.
