reactor had taken place in October 1966. Fermi 1, a small nuclear reactor south of Detroit, was the nation's first and only commercially operating liquid metal fast breeder reactor. The reactor experienced loss of coolant, which was unnoticed by workers until core temperature alarms sounded.
Detroit Edison proposed construction of a liquid metal fast breeder reactor called Fermi I.
Another variant is the liquid metal fast breeder reactor which uses liquid metal such as lead and sodium to cool and moderate the reactor temperature whose heat again drives turbines.
