To reduce SNF cask failure risk in the ISFSF building areas, where SNF cask could be lifted more than 30 cm, special design shock absorbers are installed. The main function of these shock absorbers is to reduce the dynamic loads to a fully loaded SNF cask (weight 77 - 89 t) in case of dropping and prevent or minimise the possibility to lose the tightness of the SNF cask and release of radioactive materials from SNF rod(s). Evaluation of the shock absorbers capability to withstand the dynamic load in case of an accident was performed.

20 Dec 2021 | RATEN ICN

RATEN ICN was designated as IAEA International Centre based on Research Reactors for the “Education and Training” and for “Joint Research and Development (R&D) Projects” fields, joining the Network of other 6 well-known institutes from the USA, France, Belgium, Korea and Russia.

Scientists of Lithuanian Energy Institute have recently collaborated with colleagues from other European TSOs and ETSON partners in research activities – BARCO and ETSON-SAMHYCO-NET benchmarks.

20 Dec 2021 | RATEN ICN

The Advanced Thermo-Hydraulics Experiment for Nuclear Application (ATHENA) facility will be built at Mioveni platform, on the RATEN-ICN research center premises. 

20 Dec 2021 | LEI

Ph.D. student Noura Elsalamouny (Lithuanian Energy Institute, Laboratory of Nuclear Installation Safety) participated in Summer School 2021 “Modelling, Experimental and Validation” (MeV) organized through the cooperation of multiple stakeholders, i.e. Argonne, Idaho and Oak-Ridge national labs. Noura worked in a team together with other students and presented joint work titled “The at-home micro reactor”. This futuristic idea was investigated in terms of the conceptual goals set, the necessary safety requirements, the design constraints, and the economic benefits of a micro-reactor installed at-home.
