Innovating to protect the future
The highly Innovative ABWR (HI-ABWR) is based on an international standard of ABWR design that meets the regulatory requirements of the UK and Europe has received design acceptance confirmation from the UK, reflecting lessons learned from the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station accident. The HI-ABWR is a next-generation light water reactor that incorporates new safety mechanisms. It is equipped with innovative safety features, such as disaster countermeasures, control of unexpected accident escalation and reduce the reactor's impact on the environment.
In addition, it contributes to the realization of carbon neutrality through the reduction of spent fuel using high-burnup fuels and the stabilization of electric power systems by load following operations.
