ALLEGRO reactor – main features

  • ALLEGRO
  • GFR demonstration reactor
  • GFR
  • gas cooled fast reactor
  • - potential alternative of SFR
  • - efficient use of natural uranium
  • - MA recycling → reduction of HLW radiotoxicity
  • - high temperature heat production for hydrogen production, as process heat, ...

ALLEGRO reactor – main features

  • ALLEGRO reactor
  • first GFR without electricity generation
  • two different core:
  • - starting MOX core - test of GFR operation with well established fuel
  • - test of ceramic fuel subassemblies
  • - second ceramic fuel core - test of new fuel design

ALLEGRO project

  • All works necessary for for GFR demonstration:
  • preparatory phase
  • licensing and construction of ALLEGRO reactor
  • R&D
  • operation of ALLEGRO
  • decommissioning
  • Preparatory phase
  • should provide basic documents as basis for decisions as follows:
    • whether GFR is accepted in Europe as a complementary option of SFR
    • whether the corresponding governments are ready to host ALLEGRO in the region
    • selection of the site of the ALLEGRO reactor
