Hyperion Global Energy
The Vulcan 3
  • Reactor Type: Molten Salt fueled reactor
  • Fuel: Uranium or Spent Nuclear Waste
  • Fuel Salt:Lithium Fluoride
  • Moderator: Zirconium Hydride
  • Neutron Spectrum: Thermal
  • Net Electric Capacity: 1000 Mw(e) or greater
  • Outlet Temperature: 650C
  • Gross Thermal Efficiency: 44% using a Brayton Cycle with reheat
  • Fuel Efficiency: Considerably higher per Mw than a conventional light water reactor
  • Long-lived Actinide Waste: Significantly less per MW than conventional light water reactors
  • Loss of Station Power or Blackout Power: It is completely safe without outside intervention (walk away safe)
  • Mode of Operation: Used for base load as well as load following
  • Can power an average of a million + homes
Seems like a Canadian version of Transatomic. Recycling the old name that Gen4 Energy used to go by...
