Title: NUCLEAR FACILITY WITH A FUEL POOL AND AN ACCORDING COOLING MODULE
Abstract:
The invention relates to a nuclear facility (12) with a fuel pool (2) containing a liquid (4) and with an associated cooling circuit (32) for a circulating cooling agent, the cooling circuit (32) comprising * a cooling module (14) with a first heat exchanger (18) which immerges into the liquid (4), * a second heat exchanger (34) which is located outside the fuel pool (2), * connecting lines (36) between the first exchanger (18) and the second heat exchanger (34). In order to provide for reliable cooling even if the filling level (6) drops, the cooling module (14) comprises a lifting body (16) and floats in the liquid (4) such that its altitude varies with the filling level (6) of the liquid (4) in the fuel pool (2).
