Government Considering SMRs For Beyond 2030, Says Minister
Ramona Manesco said Romania is planning one more unit at Cernavodă.
Romania’s objective is to refurbish the Cernavodă-1 nuclear power plant and by 2030 to build a new unit on the same site, although beyond 2030 the country is considering new Generation IV reactors including small modular reactors, Ramona Manesco, the country’s minister for foreign affairs, told a forum in Brussels.

Ms Manesco told the first US-EU High-Level Industrial Forum on Small Modular Reactors that Romania remains very interested in R&D in this field and is developing the Advanced Lead Fast Reactor European Demonstrator (Alfred) at the Institute of Nuclear Research in Pitești.
