7th reactor cycle successfully ended

On July, 15th the reactor was shutdown after 52 days of successful operation.

With the end of the 7th reactor cycle the long 6-week service period has  started.

This service period will be used for many routine checks, maintenance work  and the change of the fuel element. First parts of the semi-automatic silicon doping facility will be installed. For the scientific  part, a major task  is the removal of further instruments from the FZ J├╝lich to Munich and the construction of new neutron guides.
