Safety Analysis of SMR with PAssive Mitigation strategies – Severe Accident (SASPAM)
From October 1st, 2022, the SACRE group of PSI LRT participates as an associated partner in the 4 year EU Project "SASPAM" (Safety Analysis of SMR with PAssive Mitigation strategies – Severe Accident), funded by EURATOM.
The key objective of the SASPAM-SA is to investigate the applicability and transfer of the operating large-LWR reactor knowledge and know-how to the near-term deployment of integral PWR in the view of the European licensing analyses needs for Severe Accidents and Emergency Planning Zone.
The expected key outcome of SASPAM-SA is to support the integrated PWR licensing process by bringing up the needed key elements of the safety demonstration, and to speed up the licensing and siting process of integrated PWRs in Europe. In addition, the project includes dedicated actions on Accident Tolerant Fuels and In-Vessel Melt Retention.
