- GH Power has completed the design, procurement, and Phase 1 test program of a 1 MW Commercial Reactor.
- The reactor was built and tested at GH Power’s fabrication facility in Hamilton in the GTA.
- To house 24/7 continuous commercial operations, the reactor was disassembled and installed at a new GH Power industrial property in Hamilton.
- Phase 2 Testing Program focuses on preparing the reactor for commercial operations.
- Phase 3: will include continuous operations of 1MW Commercial Reactor and integration into the final modular reactor design for a large-scale behind-the-fence power solution for the building landlord.

PLAN TO SCALE TECHNOLOGY
Brief testing on 1 MW reactor
Steps to scale from 2-hour test runs on 1 MW reactor to multiple 25 MW combined cycle projects.
24/7 operations of 1MW reactor
- Move reactor into new facility
- Install and testing/optimization window
- Data collection from testing
- Staff training and formalised policies and procedures
- Develop hydrogen quality control methods
- Develop 4N/5N alumina quality control methods
Increase power production
- Purchase combustion engine
- Power production used for internal processes
- Gather and access data from power production
- Obtain certification for power production
- Unit used for training
Gas Turbine Integration
- Build large scale reactor at highest ROI site in pipeline
- Design collaboration with turbine manufacture
- Optimize reactor tube sizes and configuration
- Interconnection agreement and off-grid PPAs
Manufacture and operate multiple 25 MW combined cycle projects
- Use Hamilton as mass manufacturing and R&D facility
- Standardize manufacturing
- Make operational processes and best practices easily transferable
