The boiling water reactor (BWR) is a type of nuclear reactor used for the generation of electrical power. It is the second most common type of electricity-generating nuclear reactor after the pressurized water reactor (PWR). The BWR was developed by the Idaho National Laboratory and General Electric in the mid-1950s. In the present, General Electric specializes in the design and construction of this type of reactor.
