The ATMEA1 reactor is a medium-power pressurized water reactor (PWR) built on proven technology, offering superior operation performance, safety and flexibility.
An operated-and-tested PWR design
Through its operated-and-tested PWR design, the ATMEA1 reactor minimizes environmental impact and improves operational efficiency through the following:
- Proven technology: The primary system design, three-loop configuration and main components are derived from AREVA's EPR™ and MHI's APWR designs.
- Superior operation performance: High availability and high thermal efficiency result in reduced operation, maintenance and fuel costs compared to other reactors of a similar size.
- Flexibility: Operators can adapt fuel-cycle duration and follow grid load requirements.
- Robust design: Safety features protect against external hazards such as large commercial airplane crash, earthquake, tsunami and flooding.
