Objectives & results
The INNO4GRAPH project aims to provide different types of innovative physical and digital tools and methods that can be used during graphite reactor dismantling operations, but also in the pre-dismantling study phase to assess the feasibility and interest of adopting these new tools and methods.
INNO4GRAPH is an integral part of an intensive testing process prior to real operations, allowing to optimise dismantling operations and minimise risks.
Inno4Graph will develop:
- Tools and methods which will be used in tests and studies before the actual dismantling operations to:
- Get an extensive knowledge of the graphite properties and the dismantling tools to be used. These include in-situ measurements of cracks and corrosion, digital tools and testing protocols.
- Evaluate the efficiency of innovative tools to define the most adapted scenario for each reactor considering the local context (technical constraints, regulations, …), safety and cost-efficiency. These include scenario grid analysis, mock-ups for physical tests and digital 3D models.
- Innovative cutting and handling tools to be used during the dismantling operations.
