NuGen's Mission: Develop an Innovative Fully Integrated Modular Nuclear Engine​​

​​·  The NuGen Engine™ will be a revolutionary single-cycle

microreactor contained in a single transportable module. 

We call it the NuGen Engine™ because of its simple robust 

compact configuration and its versatility.

·  It has a unique highly innovative design: a fully integrated,

single-cycle system, with a spiral fuel core. The patented  

spiral fuel core results in a shorter fuel core.

·  The spiral fuel core—coupled with the full integration

and single cycle—make the reactor both more compact

and more efficient.

·  These features also mean a simpler configuration, plus

fewer and simpler components, with key advantages:

high manufacturability and transportability and less maintenance. The high manufacturability will reduce the production costs and time, and also enable component optimization during the integration design phase.

·  As a small gas-cooled reactor, the NuGen Engine™ is viewed as intrinsically safe. Its simple configuration and encapsulated fuel increase its level of safety.

·  It would be deployable in a broad range of sectors and offer off-grid electricity, high-quality process heat and cogeneration. The uses include at remote locations, mining sites, desalination plants, mini- and macro-grids, and domestic military installations and data banks and for other national defense and space uses.

·  NuGen has four US patents on its concept with other patents pending.

We have been guided in our design by the teachings of two revolutionary thinkers:

  "Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler." Albert Einstein

  "Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication."  Leonardo da Vinci

We also believe: "​Together, the world's energy companies can solve climate change, restore energy resilience, and enhance energy access for billions of our fellow humans."  Steve Rhyne, NuGen's Founder.
