MMR technology would serve as a model for future off-grid SMR deployment in Canada, to provide low-carbon energy and heat to remote industry and northern communities, the partners said. This is one of the potential SMR applications highlighted in Canada's 2018 SMR Roadmap, which provides the framework for future SMR deployment in Canada."MMR plants will provide huge benefits to Canada: more reliable and economic clean power supply to remote mines and communities," GFP CEO Joe Howieson said. "Our proposal to CNL offers a 'first-of-a-kind in Canada' technology to facilitate this."
