The US Department of Energy (DOE) has selected GE Hitachi Nuclear Energy (GEH) to lead an advanced nuclear technology research project. As part of the $2m additive manufacturing research project, GE will produce 3D printed sample replacement parts for nuclear power plants. The 3D printed sample metals will be manufactured at the GE Power Advanced Manufacturing Works facility in Greenville, South Carolina. The samples will then be delivered to the Idaho National Laboratory (INL) and will be irradiated in INL’s Advanced Test Reactor in preparation for testing.
