Teledyne Brown Engineering Chosen for Natrium Project

Teledyne Brown Engineering, Inc., a subsidiary of Teledyne Technologies Incorporated (NYSE), has been chosen by TerraPower as a supplier for the Natrium™ Reactor Demonstration Project in Kemmerer, Wyoming. The Natrium plant features a 345-Megawatt electric sodium-cooled fast reactor and a molten salt-based energy storage system. This unique storage technology allows the plant to boost output when needed and integrate with renewable resources, offering a cost-effective solution for decarbonizing the electric grid while producing dispatchable, carbon-free energy.

Teledyne Brown Engineering will design, fabricate, and test a prototype In-Vessel Transfer Machine (IVTM) for the project. This system will handle the loading, removal, and manipulation of core components within the reactor vessel during refueling operations.

“We are pleased to be a part of TerraPower’s team, supporting the goal of bringing clean, reliable, and stable energy to market,” said Scott Hall, President of Teledyne Brown Engineering. “Our team is diligently working to provide the best solution to enable the Natrium plant’s efficiency.”

The design phase will be followed by the production of a model intended for installation at the demonstration plant in Kemmerer, Wyoming.
