RERTR 2010 Technical Tour

Friday, October 15, 2010: technical tour of the RPI research reactor

RPI research reactor

The RPI research reactor, located at Instituto Tecnológico e Nuclear (ITN).

An informative technical tour of the RPI research reactor, located at Instituto Tecnológico e Nuclear (ITN), is planned for Friday, October 15, 2010. ITN is a state-sponsored laboratory dedicated to development of nuclear science and technology and provides radioisotopes for use in Portugal. The Laboratory is located at Sacavem just outside of Lisbon less than thirty minutes from the SANA Lisboa Hotel.

The RPI is a US-supplied research reactor that was converted from HEU to LEU fuel in 2007. The technical tour will also include two accelerator facilities located in the Physics Department at ITN.

Bus transportation has been arranged to take tour participants from the SANA Lisboa Hotel at 9:00 a.m. to ITN. Following the tour, participants will be returned to the hotel by around 12 noon. The planned return route passes the Lisbon airport, and participants can request to be let out at the terminal just before noon.

Please sign-up for the tour during on-line registration or at the RERTR-2010 Registration on Sunday, October 10.
