Holtec’s ambitions.

Reporter Will Wade at Bloomberg has a fantastic piece on Holtec's ambitions to go from a manufacturer of nuclear waste storage casks and plant de-commissioner to a plant operator and SMR designer.

A key barrier for nuclear power to be scaled up is cost. Holtec says its SMR design is a smaller version of existing nuclear reactors and will use robotic welding and automation.
