Hyperion is to build a small modular reactor at Savannah River. The project
is a partnership between a Department of Energy national laboratory and an
entrepreneurial start-up financed with venture capital. Small modular
reactor (SMR) start-up vendor Hyperion Power Generation has agreed to build a
prototype mini-nuclear reactor at a U.S. Department of Energy laboratory
Platts reported Sept 9. (See also WJBF TV video report).

The company signed a memorandum of understanding with the Savannah River
Nuclear Solutions to build the first demonstration reactor at the Savannah
River Site (SRS) in South Carolina. It represents a huge leap forward for
Hyperion. Until this announcement, some in the nuclear industry held a
skeptical view of its prospects for success.


Hyperion is developing a 25-MW fast reactor that uses uranium nitride fuel
and lead bismuth (liquid metal) coolant. SRS officials hope to use the
reactor to produce hydrogen which in turn will be used to make biofuels.
Other applications include reliable power for military bases.
Keynote Speaker: William Magwood, Commissioner, NRC


Building the Value Chain for Commercializing Small Modular Reactors will take
place October 18 - 20, 2010 in Washington, DC.


Register by visiting the event website at http://www.infocastnetwork.com/smr
or by calling 818.888.4444.

This Unique Event Will Provide Unparalleled Insight Into:
· Government support for SMR commercialization
· All leading SMR designs
· Customer prospects
· Developing an SMR supply chain
· Finance and investment outlook


Building the Value Chain for Commercializing Small Modular Reactors will be
the first major event where all of the communities in the SMR value chain
will come together in one spot to discuss how to build a new national SMR
industry. Leaders from the reactor developers, non-traditional customers such
as military, mining and oil industries, defense contractors and
manufacturers, utilities, and venture capital and financial
communities—communities that normally don’t communicate amongst themselves in
the ordinary course of events—will be on hand to share their perspectives on
what is needed to form an efficient and effective value chain to
commercialize SMRs.

Gold Sponsor: EXCEL Services Corporation

Silver Sponsor: Chadbourne & Parke LLP
