Looking back on 2016: OPAL has 300 days at full power

Australia’s state-of-the-art multi-purpose nuclear reactor has operated for more than 300 days at full power for a second consecutive year with over 99% reliability.

“We are particularly proud of this achievement and the people who made it possible, because it is far in excess of any of the other high-performance neutron sources around the world, including reactors and spallation sources,” said Lubi Dimitrovski, General Manager, Nuclear Operations.
