    Construction of world first MYRRHA underway

    Kick-off for the construction of MINERVA

    On 25 June 2024, after the first concepts in 1998 and the government's decision in 2018 to build MYRRHA in phases, the moment has finally arrived. Minister of Energy Tinne Van der Straeten gave the starting signal for the groundbreaking ceremony at the MINERVA construction site, the first phase of MYRRHA. This opens the door for pioneering applications by MYRRHA IVZW/AISBL and the Belgian Nuclear Research Centre (SCK CEN), led by reactor physicist Hamid Aït Abderrahim. Think of improved cancer treatments, fundamental physics research, fusion materials research, accelerator technology and the optimal processing of radioactive nuclear waste.

    Energy Minister Tinne Van der Straeten oversaw the kick-off ceremony at the MINERVA construction site in Mol and Fashion designer Flora Miranda presented her textile artwork “Spectralization,” inspired by MYRRHA.
