ARCHER Project

Advanced High-Temperature Reactors for Cogeneration of Heat and Electricity R&D.

Aim of project is to get further knowledge relative to the technology of very high temperature reactors (V-HTR) and, in particular, to demonstrate the safety of the concept.

Project date: 
Tuesday, February 1, 2011 to Saturday, January 31, 2015
