Rolls Royce wants fast-track approval of its small nuclear reactors, even though they are barely developed yet

 Rolls-Royce is urging the UK Government to fast-track approval of its
small modular nuclear reactors, despite the technology still being in the
early stages of development.

Trawsfynydd has been identified as a possible
site for the reactors, and earlier this week the company established to
develop a new reactor there set out plans to start work on a new nuclear
development in 2027 – with the plant expected to go online in the early
2030s.

UK Government sources have insisted the new reactors must go through
exhaustive safety checks, but Rolls-Royce wants clearance to deploy its
reactors from 2029 and is frustrated at the pace of the process to gain
approval, which is not expected to be completed until 2026.
