Visit to the Japanese Atomic Energy Agency

On 20-24 May 2019, professor Jacek Jagielski, coordinator of the NOMATEN Teaming project, visited the Japanese Atomic Energy Agency. The visit was related to the GO-HTR project funded by the National Center for Research and Development in Poland. The GO-HTR project focuses on the preparation for the implementation in Poland of a high-temperature gas-cooled reactor technology. The use of these reactors for the production of industrial heat in chemical companies (requiring large amounts of steam heated to 550 ° C) would drastically reduce the dependence of the Polish economy on gas imports.

During the visit in Japan, the Polish delegation also participated in the signing ceremony of the partnership agreement between the cities of Oarai (the city where the HTTR reactor is located in Japan) and Otwock, where NCBJ is located. We are particularly pleased that the scientific cooperation has helped establish close cooperation between local communities, which will allow the exchange of children from Polish and Japanese schools as well as numerous other joint activities related to Oarai and Otwock.
