Research Reactors and Materials Science

Nowadays, JSC “SSC RIAR” operates the majority of Russia’s high-flux research reactors: MIR, SM, BOR-60, VK-50, RBT-6 and RBT-10/2. 

RIAR’s reactors provide a full range of capabilities to test fuel and materials of all types of existing power reactors as well as advanced and innovative ones: water-cooled thermal reactors, including those with boiling and pressurized water, gas-cooled, fast and other types of reactors.

All the above reactors have the state, characteristics and operating parameters comparable with the best world’s ones. Nowadays, they are operated at the design parameters and with a capacity factor achieving 0.7.
