Ansaldo Nuclear To Cooperate With Westinghouse On LFR Project

Ansaldo Nuclear has won a contract to design, install and operate two experimental facilities that will be part of the Westinghouse development programme for its lead-cooled fast reactor (LFR).

Ansaldo Nuclear said it will test prototypical high-priority components at the versatile lead loop facility (VLF) and will demonstrate and validate a passive heat removal system through a second, dedicated facility referred to as PHRF.

The Westinghouse LFR is one of three projects which progressed to phase two of the UK government’s advanced modular reactor feasibility and development project.
