By Joël Guidez,Gérard Prêle

For the 1st time a e-book has been written at the technological and clinical wisdom, got in the course of, buiding , operation or even dismantling of the Superphenix plant. This reactor is still this day the main strong sodium quick breeder reactor operated within the world.(1200 MWe). The final quick breeder reactor operated on this planet is BN 800 in Russia that reached his nominal strength (800 MWe) in 2016. 

Joel Guidez all started his profession within the box of sodium-cooled quickly reactors after leaving Ecole Centrale-Paris, in 1973. He has held a variety of positions at Cadarache, Phenix and Superphenix, together with because the head of the thermal hydraulic laboratory engaging in exams for Phenix, Superphenix and the EFR ecu speedy Reactor undertaking. He was once additionally head of the OSIRIS learn reactor, situated at SACLAY, and of the HFR ecu fee reactor, positioned within the Netherlands and spent years as nuclear connecté on the French embassy in Berlin. His 2012 e-book “Phenix: the adventure suggestions” used to be translated into English and republished in 2013, and this new booklet on Superphenix is within the similar spirit of thematic research of a reactor event feedback.

Gérard Prêle graduated from the Ecole Centrale-Lyon and entered EDF and the sector of sodium-cooled speedy reactors in 1983. In 1985 he joined Superphenix, the place he was once an obligation engineer and used to be later answerable for security. He has held numerous positions at Superphenix and Phenix and used to be a quick neutron reactor (SFR) engineer on the EDF Centre Lyonnais d’Ingénierie (CLI).  He labored  as protection safety surroundings and Radiation defense undertaking head in Superphenix  at first of dismantling after which within the box of PWR for 2 years. when you consider that 2006 he has been concerned about the Gen IV and the SFR/Astrid initiatives. this present day, as an SFR/system and operations professional, certainly one of his significant roles is supporting the CEA within the initial layout of the ASTRID reactor.
