Russia and Jordan to co-operate in the field of Small Modular Rectors

Russia and Jordan have decided to intensify and step up their cooperation in the field of Small Modular Reactors (SMRs).

An Agreement has already been signed between Jordan Atomic Energy Commission and Rosatom Overseas to conduct a joint feasibility study for a Russian-designed SMR construction in Jordan in the backdrop of changing situation in the Jordanian energy market, said a press release.

“We have been cooperating with Rosatom for many years, and we are going to build on this cooperation in various spheres. Today, a potential project to construct SMR-type NPP seems more relevant and more needed, so we would like to focus on it,” said Dr. Khaled Toukan, Chairman of the Jordan Atomic Energy Commission.

Russia enjoys a wide range of expertise in the field of SMR energy. In 2019, Rosatom State Corporation is going to launch Akademic Lomonosov, its floating NPP, which will become the world’s unique reference project for nuclear power plants of this type. On top of that, Rosatom is actively developing its onshore Russian-design SMR NPP.

Apart from its modular composition, one of the main advantages of the Russian-design SMR NPP is its ability to be used as a desalination and heating plant.

Russia and Jordan are cooperating closely in the human resource development area, to implement the nuclear program of Jordan. Currently, 100 Jordanian students are studying in major Russian universities under Bachelor, Masters and other postgraduate programs.
