Petten starts research into fuel cladding for EDF
29 July, 2022
Work has begun at NRG’s High Flux Reactor in Petten, the Netherlands, to investigate material for fuel cladding tubes, according to NRG. In order to match the supply of electricity to fluctuating energy demand in the future, new fuel cladding tubes will have to be designed as temperatures will fluctuate. In December 2020, EDF and NRG started a collaboration and during the past 18 months preparations have been completed for the concept design, final design and fabrication of an irradiation installation.
