Conceived at Los Alamos National Laboratory, the intellectual property portfolio for Hyperion's first reactor was licensed to Hyperion Power Generation for commercialization under the laboratory's technology transfer program. Hyperion Power's market launch design is a Mini Power Reactor (MPR), which is even smaller than a Small Modular Reactor (SMR). MPRs are not light water reactors. MPRs offer a simple design, transportability as a single unit, and a "closed" fuel system where the reactors are factory fueled, shipped to the customer site, and then returned to the factory. In addition to being physically smaller, MPRs have a smaller energy output-under 50 megawatts electric per unit.
Hyperion Power's Mini Power Reactor, is a liquid metal-cooled fast reactor, and offers unique safety features and efficiency. Housed in a permanently sealed container just 1.5 meters wide by 2.5 meters tall, it's small enough to be transported by truck, rail or ship. Meeting all the non-proliferation criteria of the Global Nuclear Energy Partnership (GNEP), each unit produces 70 megawatts of thermal energy or 25 megawatts of electric power- enough to provide electricity for 20,000 average American-size homes or the industrial equivalent for seven to ten years depending on usage.
Offering a cost-efficient source of clean, emission-free, baseload energy, the Hyperion Power Module will provide crucial independent power for military installations; heat, steam, and electricity for mining operations; and electricity for local infrastructure and clean water processes in communities around the globe.
