Chinese specialists in cooperation with US technicians, have successfully replaced a Chinese-made nuclear reactor in Ghana that was producing highly-enriched fissionable materials easily used in making nuclear bombs, with a safer, more reliable version.

In August, a joint effort between Chinese and US nuclear specialists resulted in the successful replacement of an older Chinese-designed nuclear reactor located in Ghana, Sputnik reports.

The old reactor, called GHARR-1, served primarily scientific purposes, and was a so-called miniature neutron source reactors (MNSR), that could only generate about 30kW of thermal energy.

The reactor is designed for use in universities, hospitals and research institutes, mainly for neutron activation analysis, production of short-lived radioisotopes, education and manpower development," reads the article in World Nuclear News describing the China-developed power plant.
