Stibbe advises Pallas
Stibbe is advising the stichting Voorbereiding Pallas-reactor on the licence under the Nuclear Energy Act granted on 15 February 2023 by the Nuclear Safety and Radiation Protection Authority (ANVS) and on all other required government approvals for the construction and use of the new PALLAS reactor at Petten. It is the first time in decades that this license under the Nuclear Energy Act is granted. This license is an important step for the new PALLAS reactor that will be used to make medical isotopes and aims to replace the current High Flux Reactor (HFR), in operation since 1961, also in Petten.
Granting this license is an important event in the context of the national ambitions to construct two new nuclear power plants in the coming years and to extend the operating period of the existing nuclear power plant in Borssele.
Advising Pallas is an example of our leading nuclear energy team practice.
