It is necessary to implement reasonable maintenance based on characteristics of a nuclear power plant to achieve both high safety and high economic efficiency of the power plant. The prototype fast breeder reactor "Monju" spent most of the year on maintenance. It is important to identify causes of the prolonged maintenance of "Monju" and consider countermeasures for subsequent fast reactors. In this study, we investigate causes of the prolonged maintenance by analyzing the Monju's maintenance plan. Further, we make proposals for optimizing the maintenance of next-generation fast reactors to address the identified issues.
