Moltex selects Jacobs for new type nuclear power reactor development
SALT REACTORS ARE 100% SEALED, HIGH PRESSURE UNITS – THEY CAN NEVER BE DECOMMISSIONED AND IF THERE IS EVEN ONE TINY AIR LEAK INTO THE SALT REACTOR THEY BLOW SKY HIGH!! THESE FUCKIN’ PEOPLE ARE INSANE.. STOP THIS REACTOR NOW BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE. if you want to know how bad a Salt reactor breach is look at Santa Susana nuclear disaster in Southern California.. I REST MY CASE!! Los Angeles County should have been evacuated back then.. BUT NO! They just kept it a secret..
Moltex Energy has selected US-based professional services firm Jacobs to support its development of a new type of nuclear power plant.
Jacobs will construct an experimental facility to test the design of the the Stable Salt Reactor. The facility at Birchwood Park research and development facility in the UK will test thermal transfer from the heat source.
Moltex’s Stable Salt Reactor was designed to generate low-cost electricity by burning processed spent fuel pellets. These would otherwise be stored as radioactive waste. The names comes from its use of molten salt as a coolant.
As part of the contract, Jacobs will assist in validating modelling of heat transfer and fluid dynamics of heat spread across the fuel assemblies into coolant. It will also collaboratively create a technically complex simulation to imitate the heat output of a fuel channel.
An agency of the United States Department of Energy agency has already provided more than $6m in funding to Moltex to develop the reactor.
Currently, Moltex uses Jacobs’ ANSWERS software for radiation transport modelling and simulation of reactor performance.
Jacobs Critical Mission Solutions International senior vice-president Clive White said: “We’re looking forward to continuing our support for Moltex into this new phase of development as part of our strategy to be a solutions provider at the cutting edge of research into advanced reactors.
