Is it possible to build 1MWt Stirling engine?

Hi everyone,
Is it possible to build 1MWt Stirling engine for electricity generation? For this case Stirling vs turbine, which one you think more efficient in terms of efficiency and size?

Nothing is impossible, but I think cost of building and running, and the size might just rule the Stirling Engine out. But as a power supply in space ie the moon or mars the Stirling Engine with a Nuclear heat pack would be the way to go.

Thank you so much!

I am looking for a procedure to estimate the size of the engine. How can I calculate engine dimentions for example, cylinder volume, diameter and the overall size of the engine>? What do you recommend?

Performance depends on the equipment you use to create that.
How much is there? At least the equipment
Or the components must be good first
The next part must not escape the creator.

That he ไฮโล has much knowledge and understanding of sterling
In order to find defects when creating
And can solve that error Make creation
More powerful than before If any of these
I think chartering will be more effective.
