NuScale Power, with offices in Corvallis and Portland, is one of 24 U.S. companies that will join U.S. Commerce Secretary Gary Locke on a February business development mission to India.
NuScale, which was spun out of research at Oregon State University, has developed a small nuclear power system that is modular, scalable and addresses many of the safety concerns raised around conventional large-scale nuclear plants.
NuScale is one of two Oregon companies headed to India for the Feb. 6-11 trip: FLIR Systems of Wilsonville, which produces a wide range of commercial infrared cameras, also is headed to India, according to a press release from the office of U.S. Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-Ore.)
The delegation will make stops in New Delhi, Mumbai and Bangalore to explore export opportunities in India's expanding industrial sectors of civil-nuclear trade, defense and security, civil aviation, and information and communication technologies.
