Romanian nuclear utility Societatea Nationala Nuclearelectrica (SNN) and the European Investment Bank (EIB) have signed a loan agreement worth €145m ($159m) to support completion of Europe’s first Tritium Removal Facility (CTRF) at the Cernavoda NPP. The CTRF will remove the tritium from reactor’s coolant and moderator (heavy water), leading to increased protection of the environment, public and employees’ occupational health and safety.
