Portable nuclear reactors to power homes in future

Portable nuclear reactors to power homes in future

Miniature nuclear generators with the size of a hot tub could soon be providing communities across America with affordable energy. Powered by low-enriched uranium fuel, each Hyperion Power Module will produce enough clean, safe and environmentally friendly energy to reliably power 20,000 standard homes for Rs.5/- per KWH. Linked together they have the capacity to power much larger enterprises.

The technology was originally pioneered by the US government’s Los Alamos laboratory, famed for producing the first atomic bomb. However, the development rights have now been passed to Hyperion Power Generation (HPG) who plan to have production up and running within 5 years.

Small enough to be transported to their destination on the back of a lorry, the miniature power generators will be factory sealed, buried underground and guarded for maximum security. What’s more, they contain no moving parts so there is no risk that they could ever go into meltdown as the fuel they contain will instantaneously cool if they are ever opened.
