Design and licensing of an experimental facility for a fuel qualification test, including a small scale fuel assembly, the required coolant loop with supercritical water and safety and auxiliary systems, is the scope of the project ?Supercritical Water Reactor ? Fuel Qualification Test? (SCWR-FQT) described here. This project is a collaborative project co-funded by the European Commission, which takes advantage of a Chinese ? European collaboration, in which China offers an electrically heated out-of-pile loop for testing of fuel bundles. The results of these out-of-pile tests on an electrically heated, but otherwise identical, fuel assembly shall be used as a pre-qualification experiment as well as for providing data for CFD and system codes validation. As the next step, it has been proposed to carry out the fuel qualification test in a research reactor in the Czech republic under prototypical conditions.
