Status: In-progress

Development of the IBR-2 Facility with a Complex of Cryogenic Neutron Moderators

Leaders:     A.V. Belushkin
A.V. Vinogradov

Participating Countries and International Organizations:
Argentina, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Japan, Mongolia, Poland, Romania, Russia, Spain, United Kingdom, USA.

Scientific Programme:
The theme main task is to increase the efficiency of the use of the IBR-2 facility for realization of the program of experimental investigations, maintenance of operational reliability and safety of the reactor, creation of a complex of cryogenic neutron moderators.

Expected main results in 2018:
  • Maintenance of the IBR-2 reactor operation for physical investigations.

  • Manufacturing of a reserve movable reflector MR-3R.

  • Installation and adjustment of the CM-201 cryogenic moderator equipment at working place.

  • Step-by-step replacement and upgrading of the technological and electrical equipment in accordance with the Rostekhnadzor license requirements.
