Argonne developers have partnered with Kairos Power, an engineering company focused on clean energy and advanced nuclear reactor technology, to help develop a reactor that uses molten salt coolant rather than the traditional water coolant. Because the code is adaptable, Kairos Power can include the special features of their unique reactor design.
Kairos Power has chosen Albuquerque as its home for a new engineering center to support the development of its advanced reactor technology. The company will be located in Albuquerque’s Mesa del Sol master-planned community, where it plans to purchase an existing building on 32 acres of land for future expansion. Over the next few years, the company will invest up to $125 million on the campus and create more than 65 high-paying jobs.
ALAMEDA, Calif. – June 28, 2019 – Kairos Power has been announced as an award recipient under two U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) programs to advance nuclear energy research and technology.
ALAMEDA, Calif. – April 5, 2019 – The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) announced that Kairos Power is a recipient of a Gateway for Accelerated Innovation in Nuclear (GAIN) Nuclear Energy voucher. The GAIN vouchers provide advanced nuclear technology companies access to the research facilities and technical expertise within the DOE national laboratories. This project partners Kairos Power with Argonne National Laboratory to develop design rules for high temperature corrosion resistant structures a…
