Small Modular Reactors (SMRs vary in size from tens of megawatts to several hundreds of megawatts capacity; and there are numerous technologies in development across the world. Although none are in operation today, there are opinions expressed that it may be as soon as "later this year" or as long as seven years before an SMR enters the construction phase. Link's founders had "nukes", and through our many projects and assignments we have not only been able to infuse the appropriate elements of "nuclear competencies" into the fossil fueled and bioenergy facilities, we have also reciprocally have learned lessons on where/when more entrepreneurially-based approaches must be applied. And Link's focus over the past 20 years has always been on the "plant", the corporate infrastructure to support the facility (or fleet of facilities), and on the bottom-line impact to the primary stakeholders - - the owners and investors. We think like the owners, and are often compensated in accordance with "outcomes".
