The UK ABWR

The ABWR is the world's most advanced operational nuclear reactor, with four units delivered on-time and on-budget in Japan.

The 1.35mw plant will provide secure and sustainable power, 24 hours a day.

From April 2013 to December 2017, the UK ABWR was assessed under GDA by the Office for Nuclear regulation (ONR), Environment Agency (EA) and Natural Resources Wales (NRW).

Generic Design Assessment was successfully completed by Hitachi-GE on its original schedule, with the issue of a Design Acceptance Confirmation (DAC) from ONR, and a Statement of Design Acceptability (SoDA) from EA and NRW on 14th December 2017.
