COST AND FOOTPRINT
The ability to deliver huge amounts of clean energy at any time, in any weather and in any form from a site the size of a football pitch is what set Versatile Energy Hubs apart. We're ready to take orders.
THE KÄRNFULL WAY
With proven and pre-licensed tech delivered and financed in new ways, we're at the heart of an ecosystem helping fossil-free energy projects get built on time, on budget. Next-gen nuclear is now.
DEVELOPMENT AND DESIGN
We're true problem solvers with full value-chain expertise in driving new-build projects forward, covering everything from permits to licensing, siting to land leasing, design decisions and local dialogue. Our team creates value through replicable processes across multiple projects.
FINANCING AND PROCUREMENT
Financing is core to any large-scale energy project, and funding new SMR projects require our innovative toolbox. We're experts in structuring long-term revenue hedging, including PPAs. We procure all parts of the project, from SMRs to EPC and electrolyzers, ensuring quality throughout.
GE HITACHI'S ENGINEERING MARVEL
The BWRX-300 is the most cost-competitive ready-for-market SMR.
It has the lifecycle costs of equivalent fossil natural gas plants, w/o the emissions or risks.
Building on more than 30 years of ESBWR development, the BWRX-300 reduces scale and complexity resulting in an SMR that is smarter, safer, faster and less costly to both build and operate. It uses natural circulation and passive cooling isolation condenser systems for simple and safe operations.
BUILT BETTER AND FASTER
Proven construction tech incorporated into the BWRX-300 design adopt advanced concrete solutions proven in the gas and tunneling industries. Using a combination of modular and open-top techniques it can be constructed in 24-36 months on a plot of land the size of a football field.
AFFORDABLE CLEAN HYDROGEN
Our ability to shift energy output is key. By bundling SMRs with solid oxide electrolyzers we're able to take full benefit of nuclear's high capacity factors – and offer carbon free hydrogen at prices competitive with fossil natural gas H2.
HAVE IT YOUR WAY
Our Versatile Energy Hubs can be sited either on or off shore with a tiny footprint. For off shore delivery the setup – with SMR and electrolyzer – will be delivered as barges (FPSO style) assembled in world-leading shipyards.
