FREED

Restoration of the leak-tightness of defective nuclear fuel rods

For the first time worldwide the FREED ( Fuel Rod Encapsulation Execution in Doel) project demonstrated the capability of restoring the leak tightness of a defective nuclear fuel rod. This assures an evacuation route applicable to all 7 Belgian nuclear units and eliminates a cost of 10 M€/ year /nuclear unit.
