EUCI Conference on Small and Modular Nuclear Power Reactors to Offer Complete Story on the Promising New Industry
Just one more week before the July 19-20 event in Arlington


Washington, D.C., July 12, 2010 — Washington, D.C., July 12, 2010 Promising an enlightening break from routine Small Modular Reactor conferences, EUCI says it has scheduled a unique slate of speakers that will address new information and the untold story of the promising industry. “Licensing is important, but there’s much more to the story of this exciting and promising industry than just the licensing,” said Vince Gilbert, Chief Knowledge Officer at Excel Services who is one of the speakers. “This conference will provide some interesting information and view points that have not been fully explored before.”

In addition to Gilbert, speakers will include Hyperion Power’s CEO John Grizz Deal, Former Assistant Secretary of the USAF William C. Anderson, Hawaii Senator Fred Hemmings, High Bridge Associates’ Phil Moor, The Chamberlain Group’s Andrew Marchese, global law firm Hogan Lovells’ Mary Anne Sullivan and Daniel Stenger, David Johnson of ABS Consulting, and Jay Harris from Bruce Power among others. Special panels are set to include the U.S. Nuclear Infrastructure Council’s David Blee, The Pegasus Group’s Ed Davis, Annie Caputo of the U.S. Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works (invited), Frank Caliva of the Department of Commerce’s Office of Energy and Environmental Industries, Paul Murphy from Milbank, Tweed, Hadley & McCloy, and Ajay Kuntamukkala from Hogan Lovells.

EUCI’s Small Modular Nuclear Reactor Systems Symposium will take place July 19-20 at the Hyatt Regency Crystal City in Arlington, Virginia.

While the conference will cover all the leading technologies for the burgeoning SMR industry, special attention will be paid to those that have not been at the forefront of publicity yet offer new advancements in science and engineering, and benefits to the end user. One such example is the new sub-classification of SMRs known as Mini Power Reactors aka MPRs.

The Hyperion Power Module (HPM), under development at U.S. Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL), is one of the designs categorized as a Mini Power Reactor (MPR). The 25 MWe reactor utilizes the known components of uranium nitride fuel and lead bismuth eutectic as a coolant that eliminates the need for a location near a source of water. Hyperion Power Generation Inc. is a New Mexico-based small business “spin-out” from LANL that is paying for and utilizing the “brain trust” of the lab through a CRADA (Cooperative Research and Development Agreement).

EUCI is a leading power and utility training firm offering a number of pertinent conferences this summer including its “Nuclear Power Fundamentals” course in Chicago in July, and “Nuclear Power Plant Operations” and a “Nuclear Power Probabilistic Risk Assessment” course, both in Atlanta in August.
