Since Egypt is the second country after South Africa to build a nuclear reactor, IEEE NPSS AlexSC decided to have the privilege and made a visit to Anshas nuclear reactor which is located after 60 Km from Cairo.
There, at Anshas, lies the second research reactor ET-RR-2. It’s a 22 MW open pool multipurpose reactor (MPR) built by INVAP from Argentina. It is authorized by the Egyptian Atomic Energy Authority.
The goal of this visit was to tour the different nuclear facilities associated with the research reactor and to get an insight into the versatility of services it offers.
