SAINT JOHN, NB, June 29, 2022 /24-7PressRelease/ -- ARC Clean Energy Canada (ARC Canada) and Hatch are pleased to announce a teaming agreement for the deployment of ARC Canada's proven advanced small modular reactor (aSMR) technology. The agreement marks a significant milestone in the plan to deploy the clean technology in New Brunswick before the end of the decade. Hatch, a leading Canadian engineering firm, brings deep experience in the nuclear industry with a demonstrated history of project execution excellence from concept through to operations in multiple sectors.
"Leveraging the proven technology of EBR-II, the ARC Canada technology is positioned to be an integral part of the adoption of SMRs needed to transform the energy market with an economically competitive and environmentally responsible energy technology solution," said Robert Francki, Global Managing Director of Energy for Hatch. "ARC Canada's clean energy solution has the potential to displace significant carbon-based power sources and will complement other non-emitting technology sources to achieve a net zero economy in Canada and beyond."
Hatch is supporting ARC Canada with best-in-class engineering technology and capabilities to design ARC Canada's power plants in a fully digital format. A focus on modular design to maximize factory production and scalability to minimize on-site construction time is an important part of the implementation plan. Hatch is also playing a key role in the integration of ARC Canada's advanced technology for heavy industry using high-quality process heat which includes the optimization of the technology for clean hydrogen and ammonia production.
"Hatch's experience in the Canadian and US nuclear industry, along with broader expertise in project delivery and commercializing technologies, makes them ideal to support ARC Canada's deployment schedule in New Brunswick within the decade," said ARC Canada President & CEO, Mr. William P. Labbe, Jr. "Hatch is recognized as a global engineering leader in the energy sector with a commitment towards environmental protection and excellence. Together, ARC Canada and Hatch will provide a clean energy solution that will reshape the delivery of power plants."
Hatch has a long history of working in New Brunswick and will be expanding their Saint John and Fredericton presence in the coming months to support ARC Canada.
