In-core Fuel Management

Increasing electricity yield and fuel utilisation

The range of services offered by Siempelkamp NIS includes physical in-core fuel management for boiling and pressurised water reactors, which is aimed at improving the electricity yield and fuel utilisation. Here, all standard fuel assembly types are used, in particular MOX fuel assemblies. The work, which is performed with internationally recognised calculation programs (and effective cross-section sets) in line with the state of the art, comprises the optimisation of cyclical reactor core reloading and the associated safety-relevant verification management as well as optimum medium and long-term fuel utilisation, prospective studies and deployment planning strategies.

Our experts support your facilities in all fields of nuclear physics. We are your reliable partner with nearly four decades of experience in in-core fuel management, fuel disposal, and in criticality and shielding calculations.
