Quality Engineer

  Alkmaar    Fulltime

Who is PALLAS?

Every day, 30,000 patients depend on medical isotopes from Petten. In order to guarantee security of supply in the future, preparations are now being made for the construction of the PALLAS-reactor and the realisation of the Nuclear Health Centre.

The Foundation Preparation Pallas-reactor (PALLAS) aims to realize a 'state-of-the-art' multifunctional reactor, which will be designed for the production of (medical) isotopes and for nuclear technological research. This reactor will replace the current High Flux Reactor (HFR) in Petten (NL). With the HFR, NRG produces medical isotopes with which doctors all over the world diagnose and treat life-threatening diseases such as cancer and cardiovascular diseases. The Nuclear Health Centre will process and package medical isotopes into radio chemicals and radiopharmaceuticals (medicines). The development of this production facility runs parallel to the realisation of the PALLAS-reactor.

The Foundation NRG and PALLAS are working closely together. The management and supervisory boards of both organizations are now united, and steps are being taken to further integrate the two foundations. This will give the development of medical isotopes in Petten and the realization of the new reactor a strong impulse. NRG leads the world in research into new nuclear technologies. In addition to the new reactor, other initiatives are being developed. For an overview of these, we invite you to visit: https://www.pallasreactor.com/en/pallas-activities/.
