California-based compact fast reactor developer Oklo has submitted the first combined licence application for an advanced nuclear power unit to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

The company said its application is “a landmark milestone” in the development of advanced fission technologies.

The company began pre-application for its Aurora nuclear power plant with the NRC in 2016.

The Aurora is an advanced fission power system that generates approximately 1.5 MW of power. It consists of a small reactor with integrated solar panels.
