To address Climate Change threats, a balanced low carbon energy mix, including nuclear, is essential in Europe. To achieve that goal, the nuclear industry needs both to ensure a high level of safety and to maintain its competitiveness.
The EUR Association aims to strongly contribute to safe, competitive, and licensable nuclear New Build projects in Europe through common specifications, harmonised requirements and robust assessments of future Nuclear Power Plant designs, and strong interactions with IAEA, vendors of GEN III reactors, and nuclear regulatory bodies.
The Association issues and, from time to time, modifies and updates the ”EUR Document” containing in Volumes 1, 2 and 4, reactor design requirements and technical specifications, and in Volume 3, a number of subsets dedicated to specific designs that have been assessed against the requirement of the EUR Document.
The EUR Association is open to new Members representing companies involved in new nuclear projects or in electricity generation in Europe or outside Europe. The three following pre-determined conditions to become an EUR Member are:
Experienced power generation in Europe through Utility responsibility or Engineering supporting closely such Utility,
Nuclear experience in its own existing plants, or in new project of nuclear plants in Europe at public development stage,
Sufficient technical skills to participate effectively in EUR activities.
