Allegro status and ambitions

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 status and ambitions

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

  • - overall test of GFR at high temperature

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
