Following the invitation of Canadian Nuclear Laboratories (CNL) to express interest in building and operating an SMR demo unit on their premises, LeadCold submitted an EoI to CNL on August 9th 2017. The EoI of LeadCold included the construction and operation of an electrically heated mock-up of its SEALER design in conjunction to the Whiteshell site in Manitoba, as well as the construction and operation of a SEALER unit at the Chalk River site in Ontario. The latter would demonstrate power production to the local grid, and would in addition provide irradiation services for advanced fuels to commercial customers. The EoI of LeadCold was supported by Promation Nuclear, the Local Government District of Pinawa, Hydromine, ENEA and Westinghouse Electric.
