Fast reactor research partnership

30 March 2001

Research and testing into large-scale fast reactor safety will be carried out in a joint project between the Japan Nuclear Cycle Development Institute (JNC) and Kazakhstan’s National Nuclear Centre (NNC). The first project, known as Eagle (Experimental Acquisition of Generalised Logic to Eliminate Recriticalities), is to be carried out at NNC’s experimental Impulse Graphite Reactor (IGR). Eagle is expected to confirm that, in the event of a fast reactor core failure, early draining of melted fuel from the core could avoid escalation to a severe accident.
