Small modular reactors (SMRs) are defined as nuclear reactors generally 300 MWe equivalent or less, designed with modular technology using module factory fabrication, pursuing economies of series production and short construction times. This definition, from the World Nuclear Association, is closely based on those from the IAEA and the US Nuclear Energy Institute. Some of the already-operating small reactors mentioned or tabulated below do not fit this definition, but most of those described do fit it. PWR types may have integral steam generators, in which case the reactor pressure vessel needs to be larger, limiting portability from factory to site. Hence many larger PWRs such as the Rolls-Royce UK SMR have external steam generators.

In December 2017, the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS), DECC's successor department, announced that the SMR competition had been closed. Instead, a new two-phase advanced modular reactor competition was launched, designed to incorporate a wider range of reactor types. Total funding for the Advanced Modular Reactor (AMR) Feasibility and Development (F&D) project is up to 44 million, and 20 bids had been received by the initial deadline of 7 February 2018. In September 2018 it was announced that the following eight organisations were awarded contracts up to 300,000 to produce feasibility studies for the first phase of the AMR F&D project: Advanced Reactor Concepts (ARC-100); DBD (representing China's Institute of Nuclear and New Energy Technology's HTR-PM); LeadCold (SEALER-UK); Moltex Energy (Stable Salt Reactor); Tokamak Energy (compact spherical modular fusion reactor); U-Battery Developments (U-Battery); Ultra Safe Nuclear (Micro-Modular Reactor); and Westinghouse (Westinghouse LFR).

A 2018 report from the US Army analysed the potential benefits and challenges of mobile nuclear power plants (MNPPs) with very small modular reactor (vSMR) technology. This followed a 2016 report on Energy Systems for Forward/Remote Operating Bases. The purpose is to reduce supply vulnerabilities and operating costs while providing a sustainable option for reducing petroleum demand and consequent vulnerability. MNPPs would be portable by truck or large aircraft and if abroad, returned to the USA for refuelling after 10-20 years. They would load-follow and run on low-enriched uranium (

Since 2010 Sosny has been involved with Luch Scientific Production Association (SRI SIA Luch) and Russia's N.A. Dollezhal Research and Development Institute of Power Engineering (NIKIET or RDIPE) to design a small transportable nuclear reactor. The new design will be an HTR concept similar to Pamir but about 2.5 MWe.

Holtec International and its subsidiary SMR Inventec are developing a 160 MWe (525 MWt) factory-built reactor called the SMR-160. An integral pressurized light water reactor design with a single straight tube steam generator, the SMR-160 incorporates 57 uranium dioxide fuel assemblies with rod control assemblies and boron shim. The SMR-160 is passively cooled in operation and after shutdown for an indefinite period, with a negative temperature coefficient. The whole reactor system would be installed below ground level, with used fuel storage. A 24-month construction period is envisaged for each $600 million unit ($3750/kWe). The operational lifetime is at least 80 years.

In 2017, Holtec began operation of a 500,000 sq ft (4.6 ha) weldment factory in Camden, NJ, designed to manufacture SMR components and equipment. The facility is currently manufacturing ASME pressure vessels and spent fuel storage and transport casks, and is capable of fabricating both SMR-160 and other SMR designs.

In mid-2009, Babcock & Wilcox (B&W) announced its mPower reactor, a 500 MWt, 180 MWe integral PWR designed to be factory-made and railed to sitei. It was a deliberately conservative design, to more readily gain acceptance and licensing. In November 2012 the US Department of Energy (DOE) announced that it would support accelerated development of the design for early deployment, with up to $226 million, and it paid $111 million of this.

B&W Nuclear Energy Inc set up B&W Modular Nuclear Energy LLC (now BWXT mPower Inc) to market the design, in collaboration with Bechtel which joined the project as a 10% equity partner to design, license and deploy it. The company expects both design certification and construction permit in 2018, and commercial operation of the first two units in 2022. Overnight cost for a twin-unit plant was put by B&W at about $5000/kW.

* When B&W launched the mPower design in 2009, it said that Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) would begin the process of evaluating Clinch River at Oak Ridge as a potential lead site for the mPower reactor, and that a memorandum of understanding had been signed by B&W, TVA and a consortium of regional municipal and cooperative utilities to explore the construction of a small fleet of mPower reactors. It was later reported that the other signatories of the agreement were FirstEnergy and Oglethorpe Power3. In February 2013 B&W signed an agreement with TVA to build up to four units at Clinch River, with design certification and construction permit application to be submitted to NRC in 2015. In August 2014 the TVA said it would file an early site permit (ESP) application instead of a construction permit application for one or more small modular reactors at Clinch River, possibly by the end of 2015. In February 2016 TVA said it was still developing a site at Oak Ridge for a SMR and would apply for an early site permit (ESP, with no technology identified) in May with a view to building up to 800 MWe of capacity there.

In July 2018 GEH announced $1.9 million in funding from the US Department of Energy to lead a team including Bechtel, Exelon, Hitachi-GE Nuclear Energy and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology to examine ways to simplify the reactor design, reduce plant construction costs, and lower operation and maintenance costs for the BWRX-300. In particular the team aims to identify ways to reduce plant completion costs by 40-60% compared with other SMR designs in development and to be competitive with gas. "As the tenth evolution of the boiling water reactor, the BWRX-300 represents the simplest, yet most innovative BWR design since GE began developing nuclear reactors in 1955." In May 2021 GEH said that if the design was selected by Ontario Power Generation it planned to bring the BWRX-300 to commercial readiness in partnership with OPG, and that it would be manufactured and constructed in Ontario, with the first unit built at Darlington. In October 2021 GEH engaged BWXT Canada for detailed engineering and design.

A larger Russian factory-built and barge-mounted unit (requiring a 12,000 tonne vessel) is the VBER-150, of 350 MWt, 110 MWe. It is modular and is derived by OKBM from naval designs, with two steam generators. Uranium oxide fuel enriched to 4.7% has burnable poison; it has low burn-up (31 GWd/t average, 41.6 GWd/t maximum) and eight-year refuelling interval.

A smaller Russian BWR design is the 12 MWe transportable VKT-12, described as similar to the VK-50 prototype BWR at Dimitrovgrad, with one loop. It has a ceramic-metal core with uranium enriched to 2.4-4.8%, and 10-year refuelling interval. The reactor vessel is 2.4m inside diameter and 4.9 m high. This is reported to be shelved.

The Japan Atomic Energy Research Institute (JAERI) designed the MRX, a small (50-300 MWt) integral PWR reactor for marine propulsion or local energy supply (30 MWe). The entire plant would be factory-built. It has conventional 4.3% enriched PWR uranium oxide fuel with a 3.5-year refuelling interval and has a water-filled containment to enhance safety. Little has been heard of it since the start of the Millennium.

This was a conceptual design from DCNS (now Naval Group, state-owned), Areva, EdF and CEA from France. It is designed to be submerged, 60-100 metres deep on the sea bed up to 15 km offshore, and returned to a dry dock for servicing. The reactor, steam generators and turbine-generator would be housed in a submerged 12,000 tonne cylindrical hull about 100 metres long and 12-15 metres diameter. Each hull and power plant would be transportable using a purpose-built vessel. Reactor capacity ranged 50-250 MWe, derived from DCNS's latest naval designs, but with details not announced. In 2011 DCNS said it could start building a prototype Flexblue unit in 2013 in its shipyard at Cherbourg for launch and deployment in 2016, possibly off Flamanville, but the project has been cancelled.

Rolls-Royce has been working since 2015 on a design that was originally 220 MWe, but the focus has changed to a medium-sized reactor of 400-440 MWe (1200-1350 MWt), and from 2021 was referred to as "at least 470 MW". It is a three-loop PWR with close-coupled external steam generators. It is to be factory-built, with major components transportable to site (RPV: 11.3 m high, 4.5 m diameter, SG: 4.95 m diameter, about 25 m high) and assembled in 500 days. It has a 60-year design operating lifetime. It would use 4.95% enriched fuel with 55-60 GWd/t burn-up in 121 standard PWR fuel assemblies with active fuelled length of 2.8 m and using burnable poison in 40 out of 264 fuel rods in each. The refuelling cycle would be 18-24 months. One such unit would comprise a stand-alone power plant.
