I've got a question on these large consortiums (of US and some French firms) that have been formed to work on nuclear constructions in the US. I wasn't sure where exactly to post, so please feel free to move. NuStart is an example of the type of consortium I'm wondering about. It appears to be made up of a lot of different companies - Constellation, GE, Entergy - which makes sense in itself for funding reasons. It has I think several new reactor construction propositions in the making for US. But then you've got other consortiums (I can't recall their names) also working on US nuclear power plant proposals, and several of their members are also in the NuStart consortium. I can understand why a consortium would be needed in the first place for funding, but why are companies part of two or more consortiums building the same things at different locations? Is there a change that one group will make more money than another? Does one company in a particular consortium tend to make more money than the rest? If the companies are all working together to an extent, why not just form one big consortium working on plenty of projects? Thanks. Oh, also I realize that different consortiums have both selected the GE simplified boiling water reactor (I might've murdered that one), but that's not my question.
