Certrec Supported the Production of TerraPower’s Construction Permit Application for Their Innovative Natrium™ Reactor

Certrec’s nuclear licensing and document management services continue to serve the nuclear industry in the development of advanced reactor projects.

FORT WORTH, Texas, April 3, 2024 — Certrec, a leading provider of regulatory compliance and digital integration solutions for the nuclear industry, is pleased to announce its participation in supporting the smooth transmission of TerraPower’s Construction Permit Application (CPA). TerraPower recently made its successful CPA submittal to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) for their Natrium advanced nuclear reactor.

Some challenges in the NRC licensing process include a set of complex requirements with multiple contributors working to meet a rigid deadline. With more than 35 years of experience in the realm of NRC licensing and regulatory processes, Certrec supports a majority of the companies involved in the production of nuclear new builds and advanced reactors. Certrec understands the challenges our clients face. Through our suite of SaaS applications, regulatory experience, and project and document management services, we tackle these challenges with confidence.

Certrec provides support in the creation and management of many complex NRC documents such as Design Control Documents, Combined Operating License Applications, Final Safety Analysis Reports, License Amendments, and Technical Specifications. Certrec’s document management services are an efficient solution, saving clients’ money and resources while maintaining production deadlines.

“Through the Certrec document development platform and expert document publishing services, Certrec enabled us to navigate complex document development with efficiency and effectiveness, enabling us to achieve our CPA submittal objective,”

said Nick Kellenberger, Licensing Manager, Natrium at TerraPower

Through Taktix®, Certrec’s SaaS workflow solution, TerraPower was able to manage physical paperwork while keeping documentation protected and organized. The time-saving benefits of Taktix® enabled TerraPower’s team to concentrate efforts on production rather than on administrative tasks. Certrec also provided technical editing, document processing services, and project management support to oversee and control the electronic processing of the CPA.


TerraPower’s achievement is a significant milestone in commercializing their Natriumtechnology, a TerraPower and GE-Hitachi technology. Certrec will continue to assist TerraPower in meeting its strategic objectives; bringing this innovative, cost-competitive energy source to the public. Ted Enos, President and CEO of Certrec, said of this announcement, “The successful submittal of TerraPower’s CPA is a step forward in delivering a clean energy future. We are happy to have contributed substantially to their application submission. With the successful submission of this construction application, TerraPower is one step closer to making this project a reality.”
