Dnia 5 kwietnia (piątek) o godzinie 10:15, w sali B2.38 odbędzie się seminarium, na którym zostanie wygłoszony referat pt.:

„Construction of the research high temperature gas-cooled reactor HTGR-POLA (POLish Atomic) in Świerk”

Referuje: prof. dr hab. Mariusz P. Dąbrowski (NCBJ)

High-temperature nuclear reactors produce heat at the temperature range (from over 500 ⁰C to even 1000 ⁰C) which is hardly achievable by any light water reactor (approx. 300 ⁰C). In view of that they are ideal for decarbonization of the Polish chemical and petrochemical industry which requires the high temperature steam. NCBJ has been carrying out preparatory work in various areas (legal, social, organizational, technical) for the construction of this type of reactors in Poland for nearly a decade. Now the NCBJ experts plan to build a research-demo reactor at Świerk in order to gain experience towards industrial implementation of this technology. Due to the fund from the Ministry of Science and Higher Education (agreement 1/HTGR/2021/14), the elaboration of the so-called basic design of such a reactor is being carried on. This happens in cooperation with the Japan Atomic Energy Agency, which possesses similar, though not updated to current trends in polygeneration (production electricity, heat, hydrogen etc.), research device – HTTR. The reactor traditionally carrying feminine name “POLA” will have a power of 30 MW thermal and will operate continuously using the energy produced for NCBJ’s own purposes (electricity production, municipal heat) and for an industrial test installations using high-temperature steam at 560 ⁰C. The aim of the seminar will be to present the context, assumptions, status of current work on the reactor design and the prospects for its rapid construction.
