Exactly Midway.  The reactor is only a fraction of the overall equipment needed to generate and distribute the electricity.  Still, this mini reactor would allow for a MUCH smaller footprint when compared to a full-scale nuke plant.

No, not really. Remember that this plant is only 10MW. You can put a complete gas turbine 10 MW plant in a package the size of a locomotive.
