OPG goes for a boiling water reactor


I'm happy it's not molten salt.  This is standard US-style boiling water reactor, but very tiny.  It won't stick out of the noise band of Darlington, but it looks good.  I was all for the big version of this, but 'small' is so trendy!  I would be worried about the earthquake thing, but nobody else is, and they have the big cement pit next door.  The blasts will cure it of any vibration weaknesses.

ps.  I am reminded of the 70's when GM thought they could build a small car.
