The small-sized high-temperature gas-cooled reactors (HTGRs) with an electric power rating of less than 300 MWe can greatly facilitate decentralized energy supply, and create new industries and stimulate economical development in cities and localities as well as in those remote regions to which power transmission grids are undeveloped in developing countries such as Kazakhstan. In 2007, Japan Atomic Energy Agency (JAEA) and National Nuclear Center of Kazakhstan (NNC) have started to collaborate in nuclear energy research and development for early realization of deployment of the HTGR in Kazakhstan, and to support for the Kazakhstan HTGR (KHTR) Project by utilizing the technologies developed under the High Temperature Engineering Test Reactor (HTTR) Project. In 2010, JAEA started a conceptual design of KHTR steam turbine system with thermal power of 50 MW and the maximum coolant temperature at reactor outlet of 750 $$^{circ}$$C for earlier development of HTGRs with support of Japan parties, which consists of Japanese industrial companies, etc. in order to support NNC for preparation of the feasibility study of KHTR.
