Materials Testing

European materials test reactors (MTRs) have successfully served the nuclear power industry over many years. They have fulfilled many different roles in supporting nuclear power development; additionally they are well known for their role in the produc­tion of radio-isotopes for medical applications. Successful reactors include: BR2 in Belgium, R2 in Sweden, HFR in the Netherlands and LVR15 in the Czech Republic. However, by 2010 all these reactors will have reached 50 years and, therefore reaching the end of their operational life. There is an important European initiative FEUNMARR (Parrat et al., to be published) to address this issue and define the needs for future MTRs.
