NRG this week submitted an application for an environmental impact assessment report to the Dutch Ministry of Housing, Spatial Planning, and the Environment for the Pallas reactor.
The submission is the first step in a process to request a permit for the construction of a new research reactor to produce isotopes for medical applications and expand scientific and applied nuclear research.
NRG is considering two locations for Pallas: Petten in the northwest region of North Holland and Borssele in the southwest region of Zeeland.
The goal is to have Pallas operating in 2016, pending funding and regulatory approvals.
