In November 2017, Terrestrial Energy completed the first engineering program for the IMSR® design and the first step of the Canadian regulatory phase — Phase I of CNSC’s Vendor Design Review. This is a first for an advanced reactor. In addition, IMSR® power plant site selection work is underway in Canada and the United States.
