Export to a third country to be jointly pursued under the partnership. 2014 Won a bid to upgrade the Hoger Onderwijs Reactor (HOR) of the Netherlands Won the bid to install a cold neutron testing facility for HOR, operated by Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands. 2013 Established pyroprocess integrated inactive demonstration facility (PRIDE) Established the world&rsquo;s first pyroprocessing integrated inactive demonstration facility for peaceful recycling of spent nuclear fuel. 2012 Led international project on high-density, low-enriched uranium fuel Contributed to international nuclear security by sharing centrifugal atomization technology to minimize use of high-density, low-enriched uranium fuel by research reactors 2012 Acquired standard design approval for SMART reactor Acquired standard design approval for SMART, which places primary components in a single leak-tight pressure vessel. Succeeded in obtaining first-ever standard design approval for an integrated reactor. 2011 Developed high power proton linear accelerator Became the third country in the world, following the United States and Japan, to develop a high power proton linear accelerator capable of accelerating beams to 100 Mev (20 mA). 2010 Constructed cold neutron research facility Established national research facility (seven cold neutron scattering instruments) to utilize cold neutrons produced from HANARO for research in nano- and bio-related fields. <h3 lang="en">2000 ~ 2009</h3> Mar. 27, 2007 Korea Atomic Energy Research Institute inaugurated with change of Korean name Mar. 27, 2007 Korea Institute of Radiological and Medical Sciences separated into independent institute Sep. 29, 2006 Jeongeup Advanced Radiation Technology Institute established Oct. 25, 2004 Korea Institute of Nuclear Nonproliferation and Control separated into independent institute 2006 Established Advanced Thermal-hydraulic Test Loop for Accident Simulation (ATLAS) Established ATLAS to improve nuclear safety based on simulations of actual pressure and temperature in nuclear power plants during failure. 2003 Developed zirconium alloy fuel cladding Developed high-performance zirconium alloy fuel cladding, which offers improved corrosion resistance and creep strength compared to imported fuel claddings. 2001 Developed new radiopharmaceutical Milican Inj Developed new radiopharmaceutical using holmium-166 to treat liver cancer without medical surgery (first new radiopharmaceutical in Korea). <h3 lang="en">1990 ~ 1999</h3> Feb. 15, 1990 Korea Institute of Nuclear Safety separated into independent institute Dec. 16, 1996 Reactor system, nuclear fuel, and radioactive waste projects transferred to industries 1996 Developed the Korean Standard Nuclear Power Plant Designed the Nuclear Steam Supply System, a key component of the Korean Standard Nuclear Power Plant (OPR1000), to reflect circumstances unique to Korea and to reduce dependence on foreign technology. 1995 Constructed HANARO research reactor Designed and constructed a research reactor ranking among world top 10 in terms of size (neutron flux). Established as multi-purpose research reactor for use of neutrons, isotope production, and semiconductor production. <h3 lang="en">1980 ~ 1989</h3> Dec. 19, 1980 Name changed to Korea Advanced Energy Research Institute Merged with Korea Nuclear Fuel Development Institute Dec. 30, 1989 Original name of Korea Atomic Energy Research Institute restored 1988 Localized nuclear fuel for light-water reactor Achieved localization of nuclear fuel for light-water reactors, which account for the majority of reactors in Korea. Established a system to supply locally produced nuclear fuel to all reactors. 1987 Localized nuclear fuel for heavy-water reactor Achieved localization and mass production of heavy-water reactor fuel, which was previously imported from Canada. Paved the way towards self-reliance in nuclear energy by supplying nuclear fuel to four units of heavy-water reactors, including Wolseong Unit 1. <h3 lang="en">1959 ~ 1979</h3> Feb. 17, 1973 Korea Atomic Energy Research Institute (government-funded research institute) established merging the Atomic Energy Research Institute, Radiological Research Institute, and Radiation Research Institute in Agriculture Dec. 1, 1976 Korea Nuclear Fuel Development Institute established Feb. 3, 1959 Atomic Energy Research Institute (national research institute) established May 10, 1972 Completed construction of research reactor TRIGA-Mark Ⅲ Mar. 19, 1962 Completed construction of first research reactor TRIGA-Mark Ⅱ
