Abstract

Abstract The ABWR plant is becoming a commercial reality in Japan where the first two units are being built by the Tokyo Electric Power Company. Although these units are scheduled to come on line in 1996 and '97, the Tokyo Electric Power Company, jointly with NSSS vendors (General Electric, Toshiba and Hitachi) and Japanese BWR utilities, initiated a program for a new plant design. This program is aimed at the further evolution of the ABWR to take advantage of new technological developments and to meet possible social changes in the years to come. The expected time for the first-of-a-kind plant to come on line is in the 2010's when the first generation plants in Japan may approach the time for replacement. This paper presents the outline of this program with focus on the utility requirements and candidate technologies.
