Use results of MOX fuel in ATR Fugen nuclear power station

Ijima, Takashi; not registered; Matsumoto, Mitsuo; not registered

Fugen Nuclear Power Station ("Fugen") is a prototype Advanced Thermal Reactor (ATR), it has been demonstrated the plutonium utilization by loading many Mixed Oxide Fuels (MOX) since the reactor start up March 1979, and no fuel defect had been occurred, The MOX fuel assemblies has the high reliability and has been loaded more than 700 fuel assemblies. This is the largest in the world as a thermal neutron reactor. However, "Fugen" is planning to stop its operation in the year 2003, because the role of the Fugen almost finished. Therefore, we are going to summarize the ATR project including the Plutonium utilization experience. This paper is summarized as part of the experience.
