NuGen's Mission: Develop an Innovative Fully Integrated Modular Nuclear Engine
· The NuGen Engine™ will be a revolutionary single-cycle
microreactor for terrestrial, maritime and space uses.
We call it the NuGen Engine™ because of its simple robust
compact configuration and its versatility.
· It has a unique innovative design: a fully integrated,
single-cycle system, with a patented spiral fuel core.
· The spiral fuel core—coupled with the full integration
and single cycle—result in a significantly more compact and
· These features also mean a simpler configuration, further
simplified by the fewer and simpler components. This results
in higher manufacturability and transportability and less maintenance. The high manufacturability will reduce the production costs and time, while enabling 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, domestic military installations and data banks, and for mini- and macro-grids, shipping, and space power and propulsion, and other national defense needs.
· 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.
