The Jordan Atomic Energy Commission (JAEC) and X Energy, LLC (X-energy) have announced that they have entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) for assessing X-energy’s advanced nuclear reactor – the Xe-100 – and its potential for deployment in Jordan.
Delivery of our Xe-100 for electricity, water desalination and other thermal applications in Jordan represents a breakthrough for the advanced nuclear reactor industry. The people of Jordan stand to benefit by using our technology. This was the very reason I founded X-energy.”
This MOU is a demonstration of commitment to provide distributed and clean energy solutions to countries like Jordan. The United States of America has always been a beacon of light for civil nuclear power innovation.
The HTR’s potential once implemented provides Jordan with opportunities that include both electric generation and non-electric utilizations such as water desalination and industrial applications and is the nexus between 3rd and 4th generation technologies.
