Training reactor VR-1

Technical visits at the reactor

Providing public information is another important part of the training reactor's mission. High-school and/or university students as well as members of the public, visit the reactor. Technical tours are additional activities and can be provided only unless the reactor is routinely operated or during an outage. The tour's programme is didactic; containing a lecture, a site visit and a reactor operation demonstration. Information on all important aspects of nuclear energy production is also provided. Technical tour visitors have provided always very positive feedback concerning the tours.
