Mozweli Nuclear

Mozweli Nuclear Engineering Lighting up Africa. The nominal power output of the Mozweli MHTR100 power plant is 100MWe and has an installed capacity of 144MWe. There is no release of impermissible quantities of fission products and no possibility of a meltdown. A proof of concept plant is operational. Mozweli VISION Light up Africa Mozweli Nuclear Engineering (MNE) is a power plant design company, established in 2010. The company is led by Chief Executive Officer, Dr Trevor Dudley (Pr Eng), and his team of power system experts. They are highly experienced in the following disciplines, essential to produce a nuclear power plant: Nuclear science, Mechanical, Electrical and Simulation Engineering. Building on a new surge of innovative nuclear pebble technology, Mozweli intends to generate clean, sustainable and efficient power for Southern Africa and Africa. Clean, low-cost electricity is attainable The Mozweli project has the potential to become the biggest project on Earth, by "Lighting up Africa". South Africa has the opportunity to become the nuclear gateway to Africa, with Mozweli providing power plants to Africa. Energy-related investment pledges for the Mozweli project from investors outside South Africa amount to billions. Mozweli (Pty) Ltd has engaged with 47 African countries and received Letters of Interest (LOI) and invitations from many countries for potential deployment. The project involves establishing a nuclear fuel production facility and building 25 nuclear power plants in South Africa. This is in line with the South African energy plan (Integrated Resource Plan - IRP2019), which recommends that 2 500MWe for Small Modular Reactor (SMR) plants provides the ideal platform for investment in a pebble fuel plant. These power plants will supply the population with clean, lowcost electricity. Additional benefits include job creation; reliable, affordable electricity; industrialisation; mining applications; climate change mitigation and availability of process steam for waste management and desalination purposes and export opportunities. Multiple benefits Tests done in Germany, Japan, China, South Africa and the USA have confirmed the safety of the pebble fuel type spheres. Progressive, inherently safe nuclear technology is used to produce the fuel spheres. There is also no release of impermissible quantities of fission products. The benefits of building and commissioning MHTR100 power plants include: • Low-cost operations. • Clean, reliable and low-cost electricity. • Job creation and skills development. • Economic stimulation. • Fuel security and independence. • Industrial and mining applications. • Climate change mitigation. • Insignificant nuclear waste, and • Long-term investment returns. Services • Cradle-to-grave services along the whole industrial chain. • Current focus on reactor design, reactor component manufacturing, construction on the site, site licensing, regulatory licensing and operation and maintenance of the power plant. • Successful record in decommissioning an enrichment plant. Mozweli has the experience to decommission a plant. • Three senior members of the Mozweli team have more than 100 years of nuclear technology experience between them.
