Mitsubishi activities for advanced reactor development; Sodium-cooled Fast Reactor

Ito, Takaya*; Sato, Hiroyuki*; Usui, Yukinori*; Toda, Mikio*

MHI has participated in the FBR development that is a national project from an initial stage as a member of fabricators. Aiming at FBR commercialization until 2050, MHI has actively contributed to "Feasibility Studies on Commercialized Fast Reactor Cycle System" performed mainly by JAEA from 1999. This time, the Sodium-cooled Fast Reactor was chosen at a national level as the main concept. This Sodium-cooled Fast Reactor is proposed by MHI, and for an economy improvement innovation technologies (reduction of the number of the loops, shortening of piping systems, integrated IHX/Pump component and so on) are adopted in this concept. From now on, research and development for FBR commercialization will be accelerated at a national level toward realization of a demonstration reactor until about 2025. MHI also challenges the project as a proposer of this concept.
