The future

A new approach to delivering nuclear power

Rolls-Royce SMR is a radically different approach to delivering new nuclear power. 

Rolls-Royce SMR’s small modular reactor (SMR) programme is the first of its kind in the UK. Having recently received a half a billion-pound investment from the Government, RR-SMR will develop a factory-built nuclear power plant that is deliverable and scalable at a global level.

Our SMR has been developed in direct response to the enormous challenge facing the world as we look for new technology solutions to decarbonise our future energy needs. Our origins are deeply embedded in Rolls-Royce and their world class nuclear and manufacturing heritage.

Our vision is to provide clean, affordable energy for all, and you can be part of it.
"The most exciting nuclear project in the UK"

The project

Rolls-Royce SMR’s approach to nuclear technology and development will deliver significant benefits.

Making a meaningful impact across multiple countries, meeting unprecedented demand for clean energy solutions.

The need for clean energy solutions has created a global demand for our SMR as countries look for ways to provide reliable solutions to achieve Net Zero.  Our SMR has been designed in direct response to that enormous global challenge and our ambitions are set to match that global market as we look to build a world class global product.


When fully operational the Rolls-Royce SMR programme is forecast to create 40,000 regional UK jobs by 2050 and generate £52bn in economic benefit.  


Approximately 90% of manufacturing and assembly activities are carried out in factory conditions, helping to maintain an extremely high-quality product, to reduce onsite disruption and to support international roll out.
