NC2I – GEMINI progress

NC2I’s achievements in the last few months converge with the ongoing work in the H2020 project GEMINI .

Since 2014 the Next Generation Nuclear Plant (NGNP) Industry Alliance (USA) and the Nuclear Cogeneration Industrial Initiative (NC2I) have been joining forces to work with their respective governments to carry out the design and regulatory requirements for the development of the first commercial High Temperature Gas-cooled Reactor (HTGR) as part of the GEMINI Initiative. For 36 months, the GEMINI project will support…
