The target cost for each new small modular reactor planned by a Rolls Royce consortium for the UK is £1.8bn by the time five have been built, with further savings possible, the company said.A programme to build up to 16 SMRs by 2050 could create up to 40,000 jobs, contribute £52bn of value to the UK economy and £250bn of exports.Rolls Royce said each power station will be able to operate for 60 years and provide 440MW of electricity, which is enough to power a city.
