The Japan Materials Testing Reactor (JMTR), achieving first criticality in March 1968, has been used in testing the durability and integrity of reactor fuels and components, basic nuclear research, the production of radioisotopes, and other purposes. The JMTR, however, stopped in August 2006 after its 165th operation cycle, and is currently under going partial renewal of reactor facilities and installation of new irradiation facilities, geared toward being restarted in 2012. Now, the installation of two new irradiation facilities under the LWR irradiation environment were finished until 2011FY. One is a power ramping test facility of high-burnup fuel. Another one is a material irradiation facility for IASCC research under the LWR irradiation environment. And another irradiation facility (Hydraulic rabbit irradiation facility) maintenance is carried out on 2011FY. This report is described the installed new irradiation facilities and established irradiation facility until 2011FY in JMTR.
