Fuel assemblies

Operations demand includes power up-rates, lower neutron leakage, cycles ranging from 6 to 24 months and challenging water chemistry conditions. GAIA fuel design offers significant added value through its high mechanical fretting resistance, improved thermal performance, enhanced reliability and robustness, increased flexibility, and improved fuel cycle economy. ATRIUMTM 11 Framatome’s latest generation BWR fuel offers significant reductions in fuel cycle costs and average Linear Heat Generation Rate (LHGR), an increased discharge burnup, enhanced reliability margins, higher flexibility, improved thermal hydraulic stability behavior, and faster power maneuvering.
