The UK ABWR
Hitachi-GE is working towards deployment of the UK Advanced Boiling Water Reactor - or UK ABWR - at Horizon’s two sites, on the Isle of Anglesey and in South Gloucestershire.
The ABWR is the world’s most advanced operational nuclear reactor design, and when operational two units would reliably supply enough affordable, secure and sustainable electricity for some 5 million UK homes.
In line with the UK’s nuclear technology assessment process – the Generic Design Assessment – Hitachi-GE has developed a bespoke UK ABWR technology website.
The site contains overviews of the reactor design, of safety features, as well as of its history and experience. The site contains a library of Hitachi-GE’s UK regulatory submissions, as well as a public comment facility.
