Full Modular Nuclear Reactor Mockup

A full-scale mock-up of the main vessels of the U-Battery advanced modular reactor (AMR), by U-Battery and Cavendish Nuclear, has demonstrated how the reactor can be built using modular techniques. The mock-up includes the reactor vessel, the intermediate heat exchanger vessel, and the u-shaped connecting duct, began in February 2020, Threlfall said at an event…
Full Modular Nuclear Reactor Mockup


A full-scale mock-up of the main vessels of the U-Battery advanced modular reactor (AMR), by U-Battery and Cavendish Nuclear, has demonstrated how the reactor can be built using modular techniques.

The mock-up includes the reactor vessel, the intermediate heat exchanger vessel, and the u-shaped connecting duct, began in February 2020, Threlfall said at an event held at Cavendish Nuclear’s Whetstone facility in Leicestershire yesterday.

U-battery is an advanced small modular reactor that will use proven high-temperature gas cooled reactor technology, using highly accident tolerant TRISO fuel and delivering a scalable output from 10 MW thermal (4 MW electrical) with a footprint of 350 square metres. Each unit is projected to cost about GBP50 million (USD68 million).

The reactor’s high-temperature output of 710°C means it is ideally suited to provide a sustainable source of process heat for difficult-to-decarbonise industrial processes, the company says. Its cogeneration capabilities mean it can provide a locally embedded and reliable source of heat and power, for example at mining sites and in off-grid remote communities. “Sizeable” prospective markets have been identified in the UK and in Canada.

Auto Industry Structural Barriers to Innovation and Adaptation

A commenter questioned my claim that Tesla has proven to have vastly superior engineering and innovation than other companies. He claimed that Tesla just has a first-mover advantage. He had the claim that legacy auto can just spend the money, hire better people and catchup. Auto companies have a very, very bad history for innovating.…

Both Tesla Berlin and Austin Starting this Quarter and Each Will Ramp to 5000-10000 Cars Per Week in 2022

Elon Musk spoke at Tesla Berlin and said that the Gigafactory will start producing cars in November or December of this year. At the annual meeting, Tesla said that Texas would start producing this quarter. Structural battery packs, front castings and 4680 cells in packs were on display at GigaBerlin. They expect production to ramp…

Nobel Prize for Medicine 2015 for Helping 200 Million People Per Year at Risk River Blindness

Before the recent political and business campaign and censorship against Ivermectin was a Nobel Prize-winning wonder drug. It was being given to 200 million people per year in Africa to reduce River Blindness. There were many other diseases it was being tested and was a major treatment for other human parasitic diseases. Ivermectin was given for…
