Implementation status of MYRRHA phase 1 (MINERVA)

Ulrich Dorda, Adrian Fabich

    Research outputpeer-review


    The MYRRHA design for an accelerator driven system (ADS) is based on a 4 mA, 600 MeV CW superconducting proton linac. The construction of the first stage (called MINERVA) by the Belgium Nuclear Research Centre SCK CEN was approved in 2018. It consists of a 100 MeV superconducting RF linac as well as two independent target stations, one for radio-isotope research and production of radio-isotopes for medical purposes, the other one for fusion materials research.
