The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) MARVEL microreactor achieved 90 percent final design, a key step that will allow the project to move forward with fabrication and construction.

MARVEL will be the first new reactor at Idaho National Laboratory (INL) in more than four decades and is expected to be completed in early 2025.

The reactor will be used to help industry partners demonstrate microreactor applications, evaluate systems for remote monitoring, and develop autonomous control technologies for new reactors.
