Hyperion Power Generation Inc. (HPG), the Department of Energy – Savannah River (DOE-SR), and Savannah River National Laboratory (SRNL) have announced their commitment to deploy a privately-funded first-of-a-kind Hyperion reactor at the DOE Savannah River Site.
Hyperion Power Generation Inc., based in Denver, Colorado, was founded in 2007, and is working with Los Alamos National Laboratory to design a nuclear reactor referred to as the Hyperion Power Module (HPM). The HPM is designed to power remote mining or oil and gas operations, large government complexes, and isolated or remote communities and islands. The HPM design intent is to produce 25 megawatts (MW) electric and to use uranium nitride fuel and lead-bismuth eutectic (LBE) coolant. The reactor vessel is to be sealed at the factory, sited underground, and replaced with a new module after a designed core life of ten years. The reactor vessel, including internals, will be transportable by truck, ship, and rail. The HPM will provide safe and reliable power that is available 24/7, emitting no greenhouse gasses, and operate without on-site refueling.
