ABSTRACT

Since the shutdown of the SILOË reactor in 1997, the OSIRIS reactor has ensured the needs regarding technological irradiation at CEA including those of its industrial partners and customers. The Jules Horowitz Reactor will replace it. It has the ambition to provide the necessary nuclear data and maintain a fission research capacity in Europe after 2010. This capacity should be service-oriented. It will be established in Cadarache.

The Jules Horowitz reactor will also:

  • represent a significant step in term of performances and experimental capabilities,
  • be designed with a high flexibility, in order to satisfy the current demand from
  • European industry, research and be able to accommodate future requirements,
  • reach a high level of safety, according to the best current practice.

This paper will present the main functionalities and the design options resulting from the “preliminary design” studies.
