Aiming at enabling maintenance and repair of almost all components in JSFR demonstration reactor to a level equivalent to that attained for the light water reactors, we identified a number of parts which have difficulty in maintenance and repair in main components of the reactor structure and the primary/secondary main coolant system. And we defined the criteria for design improvement and then provided candidates of improvement measures for the identified parts. Furthermore, we made a modification of the plant design in a consistent manner integrating the improvements investigated for each major component. A series of evaluations were conducted to check the feasibility as a power plant. As the result, we found that the concept could be adopted not only to the demonstration reactor (750 MWe) but to the commercial one (1500 MWe).
