A New Argentinian Multipurpose Research Reactor

A New Argentinian Multipurpose Research Reactor: The Opal-like reactor will start operating in 2018 and will become the 10th nuclear reactor in Argentina and the Atomic Energy National Commission (Comisión Nacional de Energía Atómica, CNEA). The reactor will have 3 functions: 1) producing isotopes for medicine, 2) irradiation of fuel elements for the development of nuclear reactors built and sold by Argentina and 3) producing neutron beams for research. Sounds familiar, yes all three functions of NRU... Wish this headline could be said for Canada building a new research reactor replacing the aging nru!!! on this website you will find the link to the full presentation bout the project at International Conference on Research Reactors in 2011...
And in case you are wondering, they are doing pretty well in science, technology and business in nuclear power reactor sector as well, see these links: and and and and
