This is the second 1,000 MW pressurised water reactor
to go critical in the country.
GE Hitachi Nuclear Energy (GEH) announced on Monday the successful completion of its first services outage at a Pressurised Water Reactor
KNPP is India's first pressurised water reactor
belonging to the light water reactor category.
This is the first pressurised water reactor
( PWR) that belongs to the Light Water Reactor ( LWR) technology in the country.
Fennovoima is said to be interested in Rossatomas 1,200 megawatt AES-2006 pressurised water reactor
The required study will include a review of two potential designs: a reactor of VVER design using equipment already purchased by the customer together with Westinghouse instrumentation and control (I&C) systems, fuel and a Toshiba Corporation turbine generator, and the construction and operation of a pressurised water reactor
(PWR) 1000-1200 MW design, the company said.
Horizon Nuclear Power must now decide between the Areva and EDF''s European Pressurised water Reactor
(EPR) and Westinghouse''s AP1000 reactor for its site on Anglesey.
It is comforting to know that as part of the generic design assessment the Office for Nuclear Regulation has required Areva to correct its European Pressurised Water Reactor
(EPR) safety control system, the design of which was "not good enough", with interconnections between different classes of safety and control systems and a deficit of hard-wired safety systems, among other things ("Fully energised about nuclear safety," PE October).
The latter have a simplified pressurised water reactor
design aimed at small-scale electricity generation and water desalination projects, which are both in urgent need in Saudi Arabia.
Argentina's Atomic Energy Commission and technology firm INVAP have a simplified pressurised water reactor
design aimed at small-scale electricity generation and water desalination projects, which are both urgent needs for the oil-rich Kingdom.
aSlovenia operates the Krsko nuclear power plant, a pressurised water reactor
(PWR) connected to the grid in 1981 and co-owned with Croatia.
Centrica and EDF will form a joint venture under which they will construct, operate and decommission four new longer-lasting EPR reactors - a type of pressurised water reactor
similar to those already in use in France.
