About the Project
SRC has taken the lead on pursuing the installation of the first microreactor in Saskatchewan.
In 2022, SRC and Westinghouse Electric Canada signed an MOU to jointly develop a project to locate an eVinci™ microreactor in Saskatchewan for the testing and development of industrial, research and energy use applications. Read the news release.

Microreactors will play a key role in providing both sustainable energy, as well as energy equity across northern Canada.
Installing microreactors could transform northern and remote communities by creating social and economic opportunities — ensuring a reliable, net-zero power source and the application of other technologies, such as hydrogen, potable water, edge-of-grid power support and district heating.

SRC has a long history of providing support and leadership to the uranium/nuclear industry throughout many stages of the production cycle, principally in exploration, mining and milling, mine remediation and environmental protection. SRC owns and operates the world’s largest uranium laboratory.
We successfully operated a small SLOWPOKE-2 nuclear research reactor for over 38 years and safely completed its decommissioning in the fall of 2021.
Now, our goal is to pioneer the deployment of microreactor technology for multiple uses across Saskatchewan as one of many potential solutions to the Province’s unique energy needs.
