Japanese Companies Invest in British Core Power Floating Nuclear Power

CORE POWER is part of the team that develops an MSR (molten salt reactor) that does not need a fuel assembly (which makes it simpler, cheaper and more efficient), operates at ambient pressure (which makes it safer and cheaper) and runs at a very high temperature (which produces heat more efficiently). A Molten salt reactor was built and tested by the USA in the 1960s and China has recently built a 2 megawatt MSR test reactor.

Because the fuel-salt is liquid, it is both the fuel which produces the heat and the coolant which transports the heat to the power conversion system that makes electric power. Since the fuel and coolant is combined into one and the fuel is always locked into the coolant, the reactor cannot melt-down.

MSRs can be mass manufactured as small modular machines.
