In 2017, there was suddenly a worldwide shortage of iodine-125, used for brachytherapy for prostate cancer, because one of the large producers was temporarily shut down. McMaster & NRG joined forces for global supply.
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.
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.
