Factory construction is key to making Nuclear cost competitive. Small sizes are usually much more costly but the cost over runs and graft involved in companies getting filthey rich from halfway building a new PWR make a sealed, factory delivered option very attractive. But only if it is truly walk away passively safe. Indefinitely. including the cooling pools. This is where molten fuel reactors have a big advantage. And also in their 700C operating temp which enables molten salt energy storage so that they can vary their electrical output from 0 to 200% every day to balance large uptake of solar PV.
Thorcon also has a good vision if they can really make it happen by building in ship yards which are already adept at making big things.
