Japan, Indonesia to develop gas-cooled nuclear reactor technology


Japan and Indonesia are reportedly developing a high-temperature gas-cooled nuclear reactor (HTGR) in 2015.
Indoneisa is expected to ask for international bidding for basic designs to build HTGR power plants, while Japan hopes the project will lead to future exports of its technology for HTGRs, according to The Yomiuri Shimbun.
Indonesia said it plans to put HTGR technology into use by 2031. The Japan Atomic Energy Agency and the Indonesia government agreed in August to cooperate on development of the technology.
