Necsa’s NTP back at full production, wins AtomExpo award

The South African Nuclear Energy Corporation’s (Necsa’s) NTP Radioisotopes arm, which won the AtomExpo Award for the best project in the nonenergy related use of nuclear energy, on Monday, is back at full production, with both hot cells at its Pelindaba facility in full operation. The facility was shut down in November 2017, owing to safety issues, and production was only resumed in February this year.
