TEGSS is dedicated to design, develop and implement a nuclear safety system that will provide power during an accidient scenario. A reactor's stored thermal energy is used as a power source.
Nuclear safety has become a key topic related to public welfare due to the recent radiological release in Japan.
The main benefit of the TEGSS (Thermoelectric Generator Safety System) is that it provides an independent power source to the facility as long as there is heat within the reactor.
This system will provide an additional level of defence at nuclear facilities to ensure that their vital safety functions remain operational over a sufficient period of time.
