About the author
Jack Devanney is the principal engineer and architect of the ThorCon molten salt reactor power plant. Since 2011 he has pursued his idea of using shipyard construction technology to mass-produce safe, inexpensive power plants that can bring the benefits of electricity to all the world, with no CO2 emissions. He married the advanced nuclear technology developed and demonstrated by Oak Ridge Laboratory with his own engineering experiences with ships, power plants, and energy. He served on MIT's faculty of Ocean Engineering for ten years. In his later career he designed and managed building and operating 440,000 ton ultra large crude carriers — the world's largest oil tankers at the time. Devanney was responsible for specifications, financing, yard negotiations, supervision, and all major technical and commercial decisions. Devanney's MIT education includes a BS and MS in naval architecture and a PhD in management science.
