ATMEA1: The IAEA completes reactor safety features review

July 07, 2008

 
 ATMEA, an AREVA and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Ltd. (MHI) joint-venture, announces the completion of IAEA's review of the ATMEA1 nuclear reactor Conceptual Design Safety Features. Under the auspices of the IAEA, an international team of senior experts reviewed the ATMEA1 design and evaluated it against current and applicable IAEA Safety Standards.
 
The objective of the review was to assess whether the Conceptual Safety Features address IAEA requirements in a complete and comprehensive manner. The report concluded that the ATMEA1 conceptual design addresses the IAEA’s Fundamental Safety Principles as well as key design and safety assessment requirements. These safety features are the basis for the on-going basic design work. The reactor design will be ready for license application by the end of 2009 as planned.
 
Stefan vom Scheidt, CEO of ATMEA said: “Completion of this IAEA review is an important step that confirms the relevance of our basic safety options. I would like to express my appreciation to the IAEA staff and external experts engaged in this review program for their great effort.”
