Open letter to advocates of Generation IV reactors (IFR, LFTR, NGNP, PBHTR)

…en salt cooled Pebble Bed High Temperature Reactor and lead bismuth cooled Hyperion reactors. Every once in a while, I jump in to the passionate discussions, not to take sides, but to remind the participants what the real battle should be – fission versus fire. Here is my most recent reminder letter – it received some favorable comments, so I thought it would be worth sharing with a wider audience. Rickover’s observation about paper reactors needs…

Lynchburg, Virginia Has Reasons To Be Excited About Nuclear Industry Growth Prospects

…t model. For example – I would love to buy a few thousand dollars worth of Hyperion, NuScale, and B&W to put in the same part of my portfolio that has done so well with Apple. Posted at 12/06/2009 11:48 AM (Emphasis added.) I swear – no inside information, just lucky to be thinking along the same lines as the corporate decision makers at B&W and McDermott. Update: Apparently, I was not the only one excited by the B&W spin-off. McDermott shares ros…

Growing buzz about small reactors that can be built in series production schemes

…shared than many people in the nuclear industry imagine. I have watched as Hyperion and NuScale have received initial funding rounds from venture capitalists, found indications of renewed interest in small systems by Russian companies, and had the invigorating experience of being contacted by some people with access to large pots of investment dollars who want to hear more about how Adams Atomic Engines, Inc. might compete with those efforts. We c…

19th Carnival of Nuclear Energy Blogs – Hosted by NextBigFuture.com

…ies that point to a brighter future) at Carnival of Nuclear Energy No 19 – Hyperion on Track for 2018. If you have just recently become interested in nuclear energy, or if you have been interested in a long time but you have just discovered that there is a different perspective on the issues being offered on the web than what you might find in the advertiser supported media, here is a complete list of the previous 18 issues. Following the links an…

Michael Brune, Executive Director of the Sierra Club, Effectively Argues For Nuclear Energy By Fighting Coal, Oil and Gas

…or large scale power production, they might also realize that systems like Hyperion’s power modules and NuScale’s modular reactors will make dense, emission free nuclear energy available on a smaller scale. They might even recall that scientists and engineers have figured out how to turn nuclear heat into useful electricity on a scale small enough to power satellites, navigation buoys and even pacemakers. Those proven innovations can enable nuclea…

Small Reactors, Safety Culture, Safe Design, and Lessons Learned From SL-1

…the customers that Grizz Deal talks about when he is describing the 25 MWe Hyperion Power Module. Aside from the fact that the SL-1 could only produce a few hundred kilowatts compared to the 25,000 kilowatts that the HPM will be able to generate, it is important to understand the other contributing factors that led up to the fatal explosion that impaled one operator in the reactor building ceiling and killed the other two operators with a fatal do…

Jordan Atomic Energy Chief Provides More Details on Development Plans

…ion people and a grid whose load probably varies between about 750 megawatts and 2,400 megawatts (average of 1,200 megawatts). Jordanian power supply decision makers would be much better off in choosing smaller reactors (NuScale, Hyperion, Toshiba 4S, PBMR) that can provide the necessary redundancy and flexibility in grid operations. They would also enable a stepping stone approach to power development that might increase the long term success of…

Becoming a nuclear nut case

…el costs 40 cents a kwh. When the generators run. I am deeply attracted to Hyperion’s design and Rod’s Atomic Engines because these type of simple designs can be run safely by people with a few months of intensive training and are still safe even if people walk away from them. I love the simplicity and I love the reliability. I have become a nuclear Nut case. I pray that you will be very effective as you present options for those looking to power…
