Extend Cycle Operation

Plant’s capacity factor improvement has become essencial. We are developing long-cycle operation methods, fuel improvement, status monitoring, etc..

  • Enhancement of reliability through operation monitoring
  • Improvement in utilization capacity by combining long-term and short-term inspections
  • Optimization of facilities inspection frequency using measurement and inspection data

Technology for Extended Cycle Operation

Fuel usable in extended cycle operation

Fuel usable in extended cycle operation

10 x 10 fuel (GNF2 fuel)

  • Usable in 24-month cycle operation
  • Average discharge burnup: Approx. 50 GWd/t
  • Usable for improving power output
