☀️ 🇨🇦 Visit to McMaster University

Helmut Schober and Martin Walter will take advantage of their attendance at the GIANT High-Level Forum to pursue their trip to Hamilton, Ontario. There, they will visit the McMaster University and its McMaster Nuclear Reactor (MNR) – which became operational in 1959 and was the first university-based research reactor in the British Commonwealth.
Originally designed to operate at a maximum power of 1 MW, MNR was upgraded during the 1970s to its current rating of 5 MW with a maximum thermal neutron flux of 1 x 1014 neutrons/cm2s. MNR is classified as a medium flux reactor and it is by far the most powerful research reactor at a Canadian university – the handful of so-called “Slowpoke” reactors at other institutions typically operate at a power of 0.02 MW.
