19 July 2016

On 14 July, members from the Japan Atomic Energy Agency met with the U-Battery team at Urenco’s Head Office to share their experience of Japan’s High Temperature Engineering Test Reactor.

Steve Threlfall, General Manager, U-Battery comments:

“This was a valuable opportunity. We listened to important learnings from the Japanese experience and our visitors were able to present an update on the state of development of the test reactor.”

The following day the group had a site tour of the high temperature research/test facility and the gas-cooled reactor test facilities being installed in Warrington by Amec Foster Wheeler.
