First, we will serve the world as a global hub for SMR research and technology. The second part of our vision for the program is to have a demonstration unit built on a CNL site before 2030.
Canada has a proud track record in the design, construction, licence and operation of small reactors. In Whiteshell, we have had the WR-1, an organically cooled research reactor, as well as a SLOWPOKE reactor, another AECL design successfully deployed in universities and research institutions across the globe. In Chalk River, we can point to the ZEEP, NRX, NRU, PTR, and ZED-2 reactors as examples of success in first-of-a-kind deployment.
