SCALABLE AND LOCALLY SOURCED
Simplification is at the forefront of our implementation. We promote scalability and rapid deployment through multiple, small-scale facilities that rely on repeatable frameworks and off-the-shelf components allowing nuclear to follow the best practices of the renewables industry: scaling of quantity rather than size.
- Reduce overall costs and simplify plant operation and maintenance
- Minimize the potential for delays that result from custom configurations
- Accelerate implementation time and create a cross-trained operational team
SIMPLIFIED PRESSURIZED WATER REACTOR
Last Energy leverages standard Pressurized Water Reactor (PWR) technology that has developed a track record as a reliable source of energy production, supplying almost 8% of global electricity. With almost 300 uniquely sized PWRs in operation, we found the design robust enough to operate in the same manner at nearly any output with a clear trend towards smaller plants resulting in faster and less complex delivery. This output is compatible with most grid infrastructure around the world allowing for seamless integration.
MODERN AND MODULARIZED PLANT DESIGN
Last Energy prescribes a standardized balance of plant (BOP) configuration based on tens of thousands of existing thermal plants operating today. The design consists of a steam generator, piping to transport the steam to the turbine, an air-cooled condenser to return the exhaust back into condensate, and pumps and auxiliary components to condition the water prior to returning it to the steam generator.
OFFSITE CONSTRUCTION FOR SPEED AND QUALITY
Last Energy relies on modular construction techniques to reduce the risks of cost and delay associated with field labor. Modular construction practices allow projects to be completed 30-50% faster than traditional building methods. Components are built in a factory setting offsite, under controlled conditions, using the same materials and designed to the same codes as conventional facilities. A modular construction process also leverages standardized building materials to limit complexity in both the supply chain and construction process. Equipment skids arrive on-site pre-tested, reducing quality issues, labor costs and environmental impact.
