POCATELLO — Idaho State University last week opened a new reactor control room and simulation lab at the William M. and Karin A. Eames Advanced Technical Education and Innovation Complex.

The facility was built in a partnership with NuScale Power LLC, headquartered in Tigard, Oregon. It is the second such facility in eastern Idaho. The first, which opened in August 2021, is located at the Center for Advanced Energy Studies in Idaho Falls.

The Idaho State University College of Technology unveiled their brand-new Nuscale Nuclear Reactor Control Room and Simulator Lab Grand Wednesday, Oct. 26th. It's the largest simulation lab in the country outside of Newscale's own in-house lab.
