A first tentative analysis of the Halden Ultra-High Burn-up experiment is presented employing the TRANSURANUS code. The TRANSURANUS high burn-up models are breifly explained with emphasis on the new TRANSURANUS-HWR burn-up model. At ultra-high burn-up, the trend of the temperature prediction is in dizagreement with the experimental evidence and needs further clarification
