PWR Fuel Assembly for Shielding
Desired plant lifetime extension of nuclear power plants causes substantial investments. Additionally, in some cases the neutron fluence on reactor pressure vessels (RPV) is so high that in some areas it might come close to design limits. Since the RPV is usually not exchangeable, this would limit the lifetime of the whole plant. Framatome Shielding Fuel Assemblies reduce the neutron flux on critical areas, while ensuring full reactor power. Short delivery time, adaptive design, and no impact on safety or on the efficiency of fuel economics are crucial to plant lifetime extension.
