This animation provides an overview of the Terrestrial Energy Integral Molten Salt Reactor (IMSR®), which is the heart of an innovative small modular cogeneration plant designed to produce carbon-free, high-temperature heat for global industry and low-cost electrical power.
Terrestrial Energy is developing a cogeneration plant for clean and cost-competitive heat and electric power generation that will change how the world produces energy.
This illustration is an outer view of the IMSR® Core-unit. Their connections to the rest of the power system are at the top, allowing for easy replacement every seven years.
Before and after use, IMSR® Core-units are stored in a protective silo like this. Using these, an IMSR® plant can keep several Core-units on hand for added energy security.
This cutaway view show the interior of the IMSR® Core-unit. This elegant design enables Core-units to be factory made, easily transportable, and swappable inside the plant.
