An International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Integrated Safety Assessment for Research Reactors (INSARR) team of experts said the Philippines is committed to the safe operation of the Philippine Research Reactor-1 (PRR-1) Subcritical Assembly for Training, Education & Research (SATER) facility. This followed completion of recent commissioning tests and the start of its utilisation for training and education. The team also found the need for further improvement in the reactor’s operational organisation structure, its maintenance and operating procedures.

Move aimed at supplying crucial research reactors A Triga research reactor at the Jozef Stefan Institute in Slovenia. France’s Framatome has restarted production of metallic fuel for Triga research reactors in the US.

The company said it manufactured the first fuel element in over a decade, in a move to ramp up supply of the fuel for Triga type reactors in the US and overseas.

Framatome said Triga International, a joint venture with US-based General Atomics, will be charged with boosting production with the support of the US Department of Energy (DOE).

Last month, the DOE and Triga International signed a nine-year contract to secure new fuel elements for half of the US’ university-operated research reactors.

The first batch of fuel is expected to be delivered to the US by the end of 2023.

TRIGA International, a joint venture between France’s Framatome and US General Atomics, has manufactured its first fuel element in more than 10 years. The fuel was fabricated at Framatome’s recently restored manufacturing facility at Romans-sur-Isère in France. The company completed a three-year $80m renovation project in 2021 funded by the US Department of Energy (DOE) and TRIGA International to restart its fuel production. During the renovation, DOE provided 76 lightly used TRIGA fuel elements to US research reactors to help meet immediate needs.
