StarCore Nuclear (StarCore) is developing a High Temperature Gas Cooled Reactor using TRISO fuel, prismatic graphite blocks and a helium primary loop. The design is currently evolving, with the intent of completing the conceptual design and submitting it to the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) as part of a Vendor Design Review within one year. The paper will focus on the status and plans for the design of the reactor plant.
