PLANT OPERATIONAL RESEARCH

15.15.1 Construction

Much has been learnt from constructing the present generation of plants. Clearly, the minimising of time from the start of construction to commissioning is important. Research into finding generic ways of delivery of components to site is important.

There is a move in the evolutionary and innovative designs towards increased modularisation. Simplified designs and composite construction can reduce the amount of site work required, and therefore reduce cost.

There are some novel sitings for certain reactor types that are being proposed, e. g. barge type systems, which may be appropriate for some remote areas.

There may also be lessons that can be learned from other industries.
