Kwalification of the first wall panels for ITER: the largest and most powerful fusion device in the world
Fuel qualification for INET - HTR: none of the 60.000 particles had failed, the fuel could be used safely.
Curious how NRG can support your organisation? Take a look at the projects below. These are some of the most fantastic projects we have participated in. While this is only a small selection, they are a great source of inspiration and give an idea of how we can help.
NRG and its German partner Höfer & Bechtel work on the decommissioning of 5 PreussenElektra nuclear power plants until 2025. We take care of characterisation of the interior of the reactor vessel and biological shield and of responsible decommissioning and documented storage.
In cooperation with Höfer & Bechtel, we have taken care of the successful decommissioning, sampling, characterisation and packaging of more than 100 control rods of the Preussen Elektra Grafenrheinfeld nuclear power plant. Thanks to the smart packaging concept, we have achieved cost savings of 10%.
Fuel creep irradiations for Advanced Gas-Cooled Reactors: How the BLACKSTONE programme realised more than 40 years lifetime extension for EDF.
How we reduced operating costs for Vattenfall with €500,000 per cycle by using our fuel management software ROSA.
In 2015 NRG started together with the European Joint Research Centre (JRC) in Karlsruhe a series of nuclear fuel irradiation experiments to support the development of Molten Salt Reactor technology.
In 2016 NRG concluded the first part on the Qualification of the ITER First Wall Assemblies, the second part is conducted at the premises of project partner Forsungzentrum Juelich in 2018.
High Temperature Reactors are known for their high efficiency due to the high temperature and for being 'inherently safe’. Meaning that they can never have a core meltdown. The most important reason for this safety performance? The unique fuel that is used. Learn how NRG helped the Chinese Tsinghua University with their fuels.
NRG helped EPZ / Borssele and Ringhals to set up and go through a long term operation process. IAEA safety guideline 57 has been used as a basis for EPZ / Borssele in the Netherlands. The experience gained during the process in Borssele was then applied at Ringhals in Sweden. Read more on how both processes led to regulator approval.
