WCC20 March – Under the hood of the FOAKE 165MWe Pebble Bed Modular Reactor

Athenaeum 1 Mariendahl Lane, Newlands, Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa

Between 2000 and 2004, South Africa established itself as a leader in the research and development of new-generation-nuclear-energy through its 165MWe Pebble Bed Modular Reactor (PBMR) project. On a daily basis, hundreds of PBMR scientists and engineers, confronted with new and oftentimes daunting challenges produced a plethora of untested First-of-a-Kind- Engineering (FOAKE) concepts.. A High Impact Team (HIT), was established to test FOAKE concepts and where necessary, design processes to make them practicable. HIT responsibility extended to inter alia: advising on modularity; sourcing and manufacturing of equipment (while maximising local content); developing heavy lift and transport strategies; developing construction and installation methodologies and sequencing; advising on costs and schedule; the nuclear licensing process; waste handling and decommissioning at end of plant life. HIT provided strategic inputs into the 2003 Detailed Feasibility Report as well as the planning for the Demonstration Plant. Transport will be provided.
