fast research

The MBIR reactor facility is developed to comprehensively address the challenges of accelerated development of engineering, technologies, and scientific research in nuclear energy utilization. MBIR is essential as a key, and in some respects the only, element of ROSATOM's research infrastructure to ensure the development and verification of "new nuclear energy" and "low-carbon development" technologies. The creation of this unique research facility serves the achievement of national goals in compliance with the Government-approved list of initiatives for the socio-economic development of the Russian Federation until 2030
