The work reported here has been developed in the framework of the Safety and Environmental Assessment of Fusion Power Long Term Program (SEAL), continuing the past SEAFP study. The aim of the present work is to analyze the corrosion induced by cooling water and the subsequent phenomena and to evaluate the activated corrosion product (ACP) distribution among the different regions of the cooling system. The thermofluidodynamic conditions inside the cooling loop, the water chemistry, the neutron fluxes and the operation scenario are considered for the ACP assessment. The influence of the different design and operation parameters are discussed. The results obtained are extensively used to evaluate the occupational radiation exposure ORE.
