TVA and Kairos partner on demonstration reactor
The Tennessee Valley Authority and nuclear technology and engineering company Kairos Power this morning announced plans to collaborate on the deployment of the latter’s low-power demonstration reactor, dubbed Hermes, at the East Tennessee Technology Park (ETTP) in Oak Ridge, Tenn. TVA will provide engineering, operations, and licensing support to help Kairos with deployment, according to the announcement.
The Michael J. Lineberry Memorial Scholarship was established by the Board of Directors in 2014 for full-time graduate students pursuing a degree in Nuclear, Chemical, Electrical, or Mechanical Engineering.
Dr. Michael J. Lineberry (1946-2013) was born in Pomona, California, in 1946, and earned a Bachelor’s degree in engineering from the University of California at Los Angeles in 1967, a Master’s degree in mechanical engineering and a doctorate in engineering science and physics from the California Institute of Technology in 1968 and 1972, respectively, and a Master’s degree in business administration from the University of Chicago in 1999.
Lineberry worked at Argonne National Laboratory – West in Idaho Falls, Idaho, for over 30 years. After retiring from the lab in 2005, he became a research professor in the Department of Nuclear Engineering and Health Physics at Idaho State University, with a joint appointment at Idaho National Laboratory, and director of the university’s Institute of Nuclear Science and Engineering.
Over the years, Lineberry’s many contributions to ANS included chairing the Planning Committee and the Scholarship Policy and Coordination Committee, the Fuel Cycle and Waste Management Division and the Reactor Physics Division, and ANS national and topical meetings.
Dr. Lineberry was an ANS Fellow and member since 1974, and at the time of his death was serving as ANS Treasurer. Michael J. Lineberry died on March 6, 2013, following a sudden illness. He was 67.
Jointly sponsored by FCWMD, RPD, ETWDD, Idaho Local Section, the ANS Executive Committee, and the Lineberry Family (Gregory, Bonnie, Doug, and Laura Lineberry).
A selection committee will consist of the current chairs and vice-chairs of FCWMD, RPD, and ETWDD.
