Industry & Community Benefits Hyperion Power Module Product Characteristics
The Hyperion Power Module (HPM) offers a perfect distributed 1. Transportable
independent energy solution for remote locations that are too difficult Unit will measure approximately 1.5m wide x 2.5m tall
or expensive to reach with traditional electrical grid systems from one
large, centrally-located power plant. Each HPM-based electric plant Fits into a standard fuel transport container
generates 25MW of electricity and can be configured for steam only, Transported via ship, rail, or truck
co-generation, or electricity only.
Modular design for easy and safe transport
An HPM-based power plant can supply enough power for:
2. Sealed Core Safe and Secure
20,000+ American-style homes, or a Factory sealed; no in-field refueling, closed fuel cycle
Large hospital complex Returned to the factory for fuel and waste disposition
Entire government complex
Irrigation systems 3. Safety
Water treatment & distribution site System will handle any accident through a combination of
Waste sewage facility inherent and engineered features
Heavy oil recovery Inherent negative feedback keeps the reactor stable and operating
Refugee community at a constant temperature
