Corvallis-based NuScale Power on Monday announced a new partnership backed by several Western governors to develop a demonstration plant using its small modular nuclear reactor.

Dubbed the Western Initiative for Nuclear, the effort teams NuScale with Energy Northwest and Utah Associated Municipal Power Systems to help get NuScale’s first small modular reactor — or SMR for short — up and running by 2024.
