TEPLATOR is using proven technology principles and construction materials. Using the heat produced in TEPLATOR, we are lowering the environmental footprint. By implementing the idea of energy storage into the design, we can in fact ensure continuous heat supply to the customer. With the use of the irradiated fuel from conventional pressurized water reactors (PWRs) we ensure better utilization of the nuclear fuel. Thanks to its design and size, TEPLATOR can be sited at locations closer to end customers.
TEPLATOR’s design is based on three ideas – favorable economy, positive impact on the environment and, above all, maximum safety. The low temperatures, low pressures and low power density of the reactor lead to low-cost – and therefore cheap – components to manufacture. Together with cheap fuel, the price of heat from TEPLATOR is a fraction of the price from coal, gas or other nuclear reactors. The TEPLATOR nuclear heating plant is essentially an emission-free technology that does not emit CO2. The whole concept has an order of magnitude better nuclear safety than, for example, generation III nuclear reactors currently being built. Safety comes first in the design.
We are a young, innovative group of scientist and professionals from top Czech research organizations. We have a plan to transform heating industry from fossil fuel present into clean energy future. Our target is to develop the most sustainable and economical life-cycle for nuclear fuel.
