ASTRID project, general overview and status progress


After 6 years of conceptual design phase, the French ASTRID project has started at the beginning of 2016, a 4 years basic design phase. The objective of this paper is to show and underline ASTRID progress and status and to give information of what we have intended for the next 2 years. The ASTRID project is based on a very efficient partnership, allowing versatility and manageability. Very high level and up-to-date project management methods are performed, including technical control with engineering System tools and 3D mock-up consolidation.All the industrials partners involved in the project during the last phase have decided to pursue in the ASTRID project, and the strategic partnership with Japan is going to be reinforced.ASTRID design has also evolved, taking into account new progresses on design to reach better consistency according to high level of reliability and safety, consistent with Generation IV objectives. A cost killing methodology is provided and feedbacks will be expected during 2018 and 2019 years. In the same time, an ongoing effort started two years ago is underway to map all the qualification needs and define all associated processes consistent with safety regulator requirement.
