Steve Threlfall, General Manager, U-Battery comments:

“This was a valuable opportunity. We listened to important learnings from the Japanese experience and our visitors were able to present an update on the state of development of the test reactor.”

The following day the group had a site tour of the high temperature research/test facility and the gas-cooled reactor test facilities being installed in Warrington by Amec Foster Wheeler.
