China launches SMR project

CNNC launches demonstration SMR project
22 July 2019
Quote:The ACP100 integrated pressurised water reactor (PWR) design has been under development since 2010. Its preliminary design was completed in 2014. The major components of its primary coolant circuit are installed within the reactor pressure vessel.

It is a multi-purpose reactor designed for electricity production, heating, steam production or seawater desalination. In 2016, the design became the first SMR to pass a safety review by the International Atomic Energy Agency.

The ACP100 was identified as a 'key project' in China's 12th Five-Year Plan, and is developed from the larger ACP1000 PWR. The design, which has 57 fuel assemblies and integral steam generators, incorporates passive safety features and will be installed underground. In 2016, China announced plans to build a demonstration floating nuclear power plant based on the ACP100S variant of the CNNC design.

Generation IV nuclear looks to be the replacement for the antiquated nuclear designs in use and aging rapidly.
