English term or phrase:commercial power reactor
Mr. xy licensed as a Senior Reactor Operator for commercial power reactors. (reattori di potenza / a motore commerciali ?)
Explanation: da una visita veloce di alcuni siti americani, sono quasi sicura che power non modifichi reattore, ma si tratti di reattori per energia ad uso commerciale.
As the UMLRR is a research and educational facility, the neutrons that result from the operation of the reactor are of primary interest for experiments. The thermal energy generated is not harnessed (as it is in a commercial power reactor to generate steam). If the heat were converted to electricity, one megawatt would be enough to power roughly 10,000 100-watt light bulbs.
