Pallas Reactor Preparation Foundation (PRPF) is undertaking the Petten Pallas Reactor project in North Holland, the Netherlands.

The project involves the replacement of a high flux pool type reactor. The project will be developed in three phases: the licensable design phase, the realisation phase and the operational phase.

The main functions of PALLAS would be the production of medical isotopes, irradiation with neutrons for technical and scientific research, training and education.

In 2008, three companies bid to supply the reactor: Areva NP, INVAP and Korea Atomic Energy Research Institute (KAERI) (with Korea Power Engineering and Doosan), but no funds were available then and the bids lapsed in 2010.

Ten Haaf en Bakker and Van der Goes en Groot have been appointed to undertake the study for development.

Energy Research Centre of the Netherlands (ECN) has been appointed as an associated developer.

On April 11, 2012, study activities were commenced and completed in July 2013.

Royal HaskoningDHV has been appointed to provide the architecture and landscaping expertise for the project.

In July 2013, European Commission had concluded that a loan of US$105 million will be granted by the Dutch authorities to support the construction activities of the project.

In December 16, 2013, the project is housed in an independent foundation PRPF from NRG.

In May 2015, Tractebel Engineering was appointed to provide technical and project management personnel to support Palla.

In October 2015, the provincial government of North Holland canceled the second installment of the loan after concerns were raised regarding the feasibility.

In January 2016, zoning amendment procedure started.

In the year 2016, PRPF re-initiated the pre-qualification process and qualified three bidders. The pre-qualified consortia include Consortium of Invap; Consortium of Areva; Consortium of Korea Atomic Energy Research Institute (KAERI).

In the fourth quarter of 2016, tenders were invited from the pre-qualified consortia, with a submission deadline of March 2017. All the three consortia participated the tender process.

On January 24, 2018, PRPF was awarded design and construction contract to Ichos consortium which includes Invap along with Croonwolter&dros and Mobilis, both part of TBI Holdings of the Netherlands.

Design works are underway.
