Saint John, New Brunswick (Tuesday, February 14, 2023) – Moltex Energy Canada Inc. (Moltex) is pleased to announce the addition of five new members to its senior technical team, each of whom brings years of valuable experience and expertise to the company.
David Train will serve as Moltex’s Head of Engineering and Licensing. He has more than three decades of experience in the Canadian nuclear industry, having worked at Ontario Power Generation (OPG) in the areas of nuclear safety, operations, maintenance, engineering, refurbishment projects and licensing. He has extensive knowledge of the Canadian nuclear regulatory framework, and was a contributing author to Canada’s SMR Roadmap. Prior to joining Moltex, his most recent position was as Licensing Director for Global First Power, a joint venture between OPG and Ultra Safe Nuclear Corporation to license, build and operate a small modular reactor at Chalk River.
Patrick Reid has more than 30 years of experience in nuclear energy. As a secondment from SNC-Lavalin, he will serve as Project Director for Moltex’s WAste To Stable Salt (WATSS) nuclear fuel recycling process. He spent the last decade of his career with Atomic Energy of Canada Ltd. and Candu Energy Inc., where most recently he held the role of Director of Reactor Core Design, Safety and Licensing for SNC-Lavalin Nuclear, during which he led a team of scientists and engineers responsible for fuel design, physics design, radiation physics, safety analysis, and licensing.
Robert Mallozzi has worked in the nuclear industry for almost 25 years and joins the Moltex team as Technical Director for the company’s Stable Salt Reactor – Wasteburner (SSR-W). In previous roles with Atomic Energy of Canada Ltd. and Candu Energy Inc., he was responsible for the development and delivery of several key innovations to the CANDU fleet including reactor core inspections, component repairs, and the CANDU retubing process. Mallozzi recently served as Candu Energy Inc.’s Chief Nuclear Engineer, with responsibility for all critical engineering activities for the Canadian Nuclear division of SNC-Lavalin.
Alex DeLorey brings more than a decade of experience in increasingly senior roles at Candu Energy Inc. to his position as Project Director for Moltex’s SSR-W. In his previous role as Senior Project Manager, he developed execution plans to successfully complete 11 projects as part of the Darlington Nuclear Refurbishment, including identifying opportunities for improvements, increased efficiency and savings.
Jag Singh has over a decade of engineering and management experience in the global energy industry. As Technical Director for the WATSS nuclear fuel recycling process, he draws upon previous experiences in a variety of roles for major projects – including nearly £2 billion of recent new build plants at Sellafield in the United Kingdom – both as an independent consultant and as part of various major multinational conglomerates.
“I’m very pleased to count these knowledgeable, experienced professionals as part of the Moltex team,” said Rory O’Sullivan, Chief Executive Officer, Moltex. “Their expertise will be invaluable in progressing development of our projects and their involvement further underlines the strength of our technologies.”
Moltex is a nuclear technology leader that has caught the attention of governments, utilities and investors worldwide. It is developing three unique technologies: a Stable Salt Reactor – Wasteburner (SSR-W) that uses recycled nuclear waste as fuel; a WAste To Stable Salt (WATSS) process for recycling nuclear waste to produce SSR-W fuel; and GridReserve thermal energy storage tanks, enabling the SSR-W to act as a peaking plant. Moltex was selected by NB Power to progress development of its reactor technology in New Brunswick, Canada, with the goal of deploying first-of-a-kind SSR-W, WATSS and GridReserve units at the Point Lepreau site.
