Countries with Low RR Utilisation Rate - "Click here for individual RR details"

This map shows countries with a low research reactors utilisation rate country average.

This database contains 106 research reactors with a low utilisation rate distributed over 33 Member States.

The utilisation rate is determined by the Effective Weeks (EW=7days*24hours of operation) of utilisation per year. This database categorises research reactors as follows:

  • low utilisation rate reactor (≤ 4 EW)
  • medium utilisation rate reactor (>4 EW and ≤ 20 EW)
  • high utilisation rate reactor (> 20 EW)

Underutilisation of research reactors world wide remains an important issue.
