Rolls-Royce nuclear reactor model features in new Science Museum exhibit

A model of the Rolls-Royce Small Modular Reactor features in a new exhibition at the Science Museum.

The Energy Revolution: The Adani Green Energy Gallery at the Science Museum has opened its doors to the public and features a Rolls-Royce SMR model in the Future Power exhibition. The model highlights the innovate modular approach and the vital role our Small Modular Reactor can play in a global low-carbon future.

Rolls-Royce SMR CEO Chris Cholerton said: “I’m thrilled we’ve been able to help the Science Museum explore opportunities for the world to decarbonise through a more sustainable use of energy and to show how our technology can play a part.

“The Science Museum has curated a range of exciting clean technology exhibits for the gallery that tell this powerful and compelling story for the first time in such a stimulating way and I’m proud our SMR has been chosen to be at the heart of it.”

Energy Revolution: The Adani Green Energy Gallery is part of the Science Museum’s free offering and replaces the Atmosphere gallery, which welcomed more than six million visitors between 2010 and 2022.

The Rolls-Royce SMR is a radically different approach to delivering new nuclear power based on proven reactor technology. Each of the ‘factory-built’ nuclear power stations will provide enough low-carbon electricity to power a million homes for more than 60 years.
