The Modular High Temperature Reactor (HTR) uses simplicity instead of economy-of-scale to attain economic viability, meaning elimination of safety relevant components incorporated in current nuclear plants, because of recognised inherent safety features.
A common European safety approach for this reactor type will therefore be established and the feasibility of the licensing of such reactors will be evaluated.
Key safety issues and accidental conditions, like fission product transport, air ingress and local core heat up, for this reactor type will be researched and classified. The confinement requirements, the equipment classification rules, and the parameters will be monitored and controlled will be established.
