    Abstract

    At ESS water is used both as thermal moderators and to cool the beryllium- and steel reflectors, the shielding and plugs. This means that the water, in separate loops, will be subject to a significant proton and neutron irradiation which will activate the water. After irradiation, the water is led to delay tanks situated in one of the triangular rooms downstream from the target. This paper aims at determining the shielding required to ensure that the biological dose-rate requirements in the target building and instrument halls are met during operation of facility.
