[ News, Nation, October 30 2007] Korea successfully tests atomic reactor safety simulator

Korea has successfully tested an indigenous atomic safety simulator that is expected to help prevent nuclear accidents and enable the design of next-generation reactors, a state-run energy laboratory said Tuesday (Oct. 30).

The Korea Atomic Energy Research Institute (KAERI) said the simulator is capable of recreating all types of accidents that can occur inside both nuclear reactors that are operational in the country, and those under construction.
