Westinghouse proudly brings 70 years of experience developing & implementing new nuclear technologies that enable, reliable, clean, safe and economical sources of energy for generations to come. Our AP300 SMR leverages tens of millions of hours on AP1000® reactor development. The AP300 SMR technology builds upon the success of AP1000 reactors currently operating around the globe. We pioneered passive safety systems. AP300 utilizes identical passive safety systems used in the AP1000 reactor to maintain safe shutdown condition.
The AP300 SMR, 300MWe (900MWth), is based on the licensed AP1000 pressurized light water technology that has demonstrated industry leading reliability.
The AP300 SMR is based on proven AP1000 passive safety systems that have been extensively analyzed and tested to improve the safety of the plant. Global regulators have reviewed these systems and determined that they meet advanced safety criteria.
Fail Safe Designed to achieve and maintain safe shutdown condition without operator action, back-up power or pumps
Self Sufficient Passive approach to safety system operation eliminates the need for backup power & cooling supply
Hazard proof Protected by a robust containment designed to withstand extreme external hazards
Defense in Depth Multiple layers of defense for accident
AP300 SMR has a proven pedigree throughout the plant lifecycle. For customers this means risk reduction leading to smoother deployment and operational success. Here is what Westinghouse can deliver:
Readily Deployable Modular Construction
