Supercritical Water Reactor - Fuel Qualification Test

Objective

The SCWR-FQT project is related to the HPLWR Phase 2 European project, executed between 2006 and 2010, focused on the design of the European supercritical water cooled reactor, HPLWR. The scope of the SCWR-FQT Euratom-China parallel project is to design an experimental facility for qualification of fuel for the supercritical water-cooled reactor. The facility is destined to be operated in the LVR-15 research reactor in Czech Republic in the future. All necessary documents required for licensing of the FQT facility by the Czech regulator shall be the outcome of this project. Pre-qualification of the FQT facility will be carried out in China. Testing of a limited amount of commercially available nuclear grade materials, which are candidates for fuel cladding, will be carried out within this project as well.
The European-Chinese team behind this project has been formed during a meeting held in Rez, Czech Republic, in October 2009; the wider EU-China scientific collaboration, together with its legal aspects, has been discussed during the seminar held in Beijing in March, 2010.
