The European Sustainable Nuclear Industrial Initiative (ESNII), one of SNETP’s three pillars, has published its Vision paper. This document presents ESNII mission, vision, deployment strategy and intended actions.
ESNII addresses the need for demonstration of Generation IV Fast Neutron Reactor technologies, together with supporting research infrastructures, fuel facilities and R&D work. ESNII’s main goal is to design, license, construct, commission and put into operation before 2025 the Sodium Fast Reactor Prototype reactor called ASTRID and the flexible fast spectrum irradiation facility MYRRHA. The ALFRED demonstrator for Lead-cooled Fast Reactor, and ALLEGRO for Gas-cooled Fast Reactor technologies are also part of the roadmap.
