Studsvik Scandpower and VTT Partner to Bring QA Serpent to Nuclear Industry To address the growing need for Quality Assured neutronic simulation in the Advanced Reactor market, Studsvik Scandpower, the global leader in neutronic simulation software, and VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland, the cutting-edge leader in the development of advanced software for nuclear reactor and power plant modelling such as the Serpent Monte Carlo code, initiated a strategic partnership to expand the commercial uses of Serpent software to the advanced civil nuclear community around the globe. The partnership will continue the growth of the Studsvik product line with a new version of Serpent under Studsvik’s NQA-1 and 10 CFR50 Appendix B Quality Assurance program, Serpent-SSP.
Presentation slides Studsvik's Interim Report for the First Quarter 2022.
In December 2021 the INF vessel Pacific Grebe arrived in the Port of Norrköping in Sweden after a long sail from South Korea. On board on the ship were several KEPCO Nuclear Fuel (KNF) irradiated fuel rods intended for qualification testing in the Studsvik hot cell laboratories. No export of irradiated fuel had ever been done from Korea before and about two weeks after arrival of the rods in Sweden, the first results from the post irradiation examinations could be delivered to KNF.
