Divisions of the Rosatom State Atomic Energy Corporation took part in the annual European Research Reactor Conference (RRFM) organized by the European Nuclear Society (ENS), which finished up in Budapest, Hungary, on June 10, 2022.
The Institute of Nuclear Physics of the Academy of Sciences of Uzbekistan (INP) has accepted an invitation to participate in the International Research Center based on the world's most powerful MBIR fast-neutron research reactor, which is being built by Rosatom.
On May 25, 2022, in the city of Dimitrovgrad, Ulyanovsk region, the Operational Construction Headquarters held a meeting on MBIR Project Implementation Status under the chairmanship of Gennady Sakharov, Director for Capital Investments, State Construction Supervision and State Expertise of the State Corporation Rosatom.
MBIR, the world's most powerful fast research reactor, will be launched in 2028 with the International Research Centre (IRC) to be created on its basis. The MBIR IRC Advisory Board has recently been established to develop the research program for the reactor.
The world’s most powerful fast-neutron reactor vessel has been delivered to the Ulyanovsk Region. After its commissioning, our scientists will open a door to the XXII century.
Reactor Vessel for Multipurpose Fast neutron research reactor MBIR was successfully delivered to the SSC RIAR site (part of the Scientific Division of Rosatom State Corporation – JSC “Science and Innovations”).
Physicists in Dubna and Obninsk intend to join their efforts to unravel the mysteries of Universe origin, to simulate astrophysical phenomena, and to find new types of radioactive decay. Rosatom’s Institute of Physics and Power Engineering (IPPE) and the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research (JINR) are developing a cooperation program for fundamental research with MBIR and Neptun reactors.
The construction program for the MBIR research reactor, which is being built on the site of JSC “SSC RIAR” (Dimitrovgrad, Ulyanovsk Region), was exceeded by 8% in 2021, as stated by Gennady Sakharov, Director for Capital Investments, State Construction Supervision and State Expertise, State Atomic Energy Corporation Rosatom, at a meeting of the operational construction headquarters on January 27, 2022.
Atommash (part of the Atomenergomash machine engineering division of Rosatom) performed a test assembly of elements of a multi-purpose fast neutron research reactor (MBIR) in the Volgodonsk branch of AEM-technologies JSC. The reactor is being constructed in Dimitrovgrad at the production site of the Research Institute of Atomic Reactors of SSC RIAR JSC (part of the scientific division of Rosatom).
