Powerful New Energy Technology Under Development for Remote Locations by Hyperion Power Generation


LOS ALAMOS, N.M., July 31, 2008 — To bring the benefits of nuclear power reliable,
clean energy with no greenhouse gas emissions to remote locations, Hyperion Power
Generation, Inc. is developing a small, transportable power module. John R. “Grizz”
Deal, the companys CEO has announced the completion of another development phase
and that the company has now begun discussing installation commitments with interested
parties, for commercial deployment starting in 2013.

The Hyperion Power Module (HPM) was conceived at Los Alamos National Laboratory
and licensed to New Mexico-based Hyperion for commercialization under the
laboratorys technology transfer program. Inherently safe and proliferation-resistant, the
HPM utilizes the energy of low-enriched uranium fuel in a technology unlike any other
currently in use or in development. Approximately 4,000 units of the same design, each
offering 70 megawatts of thermal (heat) energy, or 27 megawatts of electricity via steam
turbine, will be produced and sealed at manufacturing sites. That amount of electricity
can power 20,000 average American-style homes or the industrial equivalent for $20 to
$30 million each.

“Throw out what you know about nuclear energy generation — Hyperion is unlike any
other power reactor,” said Deal. “We are employing proven science and engineering, but
in a whole new way to achieve a power source thats safe, secure, and transportable. For
communities and industrial operations in remote locations independent of a local grid,
Hyperion will change their entire energy paradigm.”

The HPM was originally created to provide affordable and emission-free heat, steam, and
electricity for recovery and processing heavy oil in oil sands and shale fields. “The HPM
is the solution that industry needs to make their product economically and
environmentally feasible,” said Deal. “But, what weve found is that HPM also has
enormous potential for developing or remote communities off a major grid. It provides
consistent energy for clean water and modern infrastructure. For emergency response or
peacekeeping installations, it provides crucial energy independence from vulnerable local
sources.”
