Carbon-free thermal and electric energy with many industrial uses
IMSR® cogeneration plants generate high-grade, high-value heat (585°C). Conventional nuclear power plants are limited to lower-grade, low-value heat supply (290°C).
Flexible industrial energy
IMSR® cogeneration plants produce thermal energy for industrial use or for generating electricity or both. They can load-follow, making them a perfect carbon-free electric grid partner for variable renewable power generation.
Low impact plant siting
An IMSR® plant has a small land footprint: 7 hectares, or 17.3 acres, yet it delivers 882 MW of thermal power, giving it an impressively small land footprint per unit of energy. This small land footprint allows for greater siting flexibility and helps ensure that the natural beauty of the countryside is minimally impacted.
