Kenichi Sato, HGNE Hitachi
Wednesday January 15th, 2013 with tea and coffee at 18:30 and talk at 19:00
Joint event with the The Nuclear Institute
After the purchase of Horizon Nuclear Power by Hitachi in 2012, the UK ABWR became the primary choice for Horizon for possible new builds at its sites in Wylfa and Oldbury. To follow this, in early 2013, Hitachi-GE Nuclear Energy, Ltd. initiated the UK ABWR Generic Design Assessment (GDA) Process with the Office for Nuclear Regulation (ONR) and the Environment Agency. The UK ABWR will be an evolution of the standard ABWR at Kashiwazaki-Kariwa Units 6 and 7. The evening lecture covers the history of ABWR development, its major design characteristics and information on the UK ABWR.
