According to this Scientific American article, Babcock and Wilcox just developed a small nuclear reactor. The article states:

Babcock & Wilcox Co.’s 125-megawatt reactor would be significantly smaller than the average 1,000-megawatt nuclear reactor and is aimed at plugging a major “market gap,” CEO Brandon Bethards said at a Washington press conference. The new reactor might come online as early as 2018.
