  6. 6. 1. Transportable 2. Sealed Core – Safe and Secure •  Unit will measure approximately 1.5 x 2.5 m •  Factory sealed •  Must fit into standard transport container •  No in-field refueling •  Modular design for easy and safe transport •  Closed fuel cycle 3. Safety 4. Operational Simplicity •  System will handle any accident through a combination of inherent and engineered •  Operation limited to reactivity adjustments to features maintain constant temperature output •  Inherent negative feedback (with respect to temperature) keeps the reactor stable and operating at a constant temperature 6. Isolated Power Production 5. Minimal In-core Components •  Electric generation components requiring maintenance in an accessible location •  Operational reliability is greatly enhanced by •  Allows existing generation facilities to be the reduction of moving mechanical parts retrofitted • Each unit will generate approximately 70MWt and 25MWe – enough to power 20,000 average American homes. • Overnight costs at $2,000 - $3,000 per KW capacity November 2009 Copyright 2009, Hyperion Power Generation, Inc.
