The visit of the French Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission (CEA) delegation to the production location of JSC “Pilot and Demonstration Center for Decommissioning of Uranium-Graphite Reactors” took place in Seversk on April 8-12, 2019. TENEX experts also took part in the visit.

During the visit, the French delegation learned about ROSATOM’s unique expertise in uranium-graphite reactors decommissioning, including argumentation of the optimum method of dismantling of the graphite stack in the industrial uranium-graphite reactor ADE-5, as well as comparative analysis of the irradiated graphite deactivation technologies.

Following the results of the visit, the parties agreed to continue the dialogue to define the perspectives of how CEA and ROSATOM can use their expertise to work on common projects and solve technical problems together.
