Radiological Safety

The cumulative occupational exposure during 30 years is negligibly small. Reactor containment building integrated leakage rate test is conducted biennially to ensure that containment integrity is well within the specified limits of 0.1%/h. During the reactor operation history, there has been no incident of abnormal radioactivity release, personnel contamination thus fortifying the worldwide view that the sodium cooled fast reactors are eco-friendly.
