World Nuclear News: IMSR materials to be tested at Petten

From World Nuclear News:

NRG is to carry out testing of materials, including graphite, for key components of Terrestrial Energy’s Integral Molten Salt Reactor (IMSR®) power plant in the High-Flux Reactor at Petten in the Netherlands under a contract announced on 5 February.

Terrestrial Energy in 2017 completed the first phase of the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission’s pre-licensing vendor review of the IMSR®, and the company is planning to submit either an application for design certification or for a construction permit for the IMSR®-400 by late 2019 to the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission.
