b'relationships with vendors of critical components, beginning fabrication of the test loop, and completing a pre-conceptual design and initiating a conceptual design for the reactor-ready NLC.The project team kicked off project execution in March of 2019 at TerraPowers facilities in Bellevue, WA and quickly organized a requirements gathering week to be held at INL facilities in April. Requirements gathering sessions were attended by representatives from postirradiation examination (PIE), TREAT Operations, TREAT Engineering and Nuclear Safety, Advanced Fuels Campaign (AFC) domestic and international experimenters, packaging and transportation, and others. These sessions yielded a draft F&OR for the prototype and reactor-ready NLCs and was subsequently distributed for review by all attendees. The final F&OR was issued to support downstream design activities on July 9, 2019.two vendors to support ALIP andFigure 2.
