Westinghouse AP1000 completes Phase 1 of Canadian Pre-Project Design review

The Westinghouse AP1000 pressurized water reactor has completed Phase 1 of the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) Pre-Project Design Review.

The objective of a Pre-Project Design review is to verify, at a high level, the acceptability of a nuclear reactor design with respect to Canadian safety requirements and criteria, including the identification of fundamental barriers to licensing a new reactor design in Canada. The review is conducted in two phases. A Phase 1 review of the AP1000 involved an overall assessment of the reactor design against the most recent CNSC design requirements for new nuclear power plants in Canada.

Currently, four AP1000 units are being built in China, two at Sanmen and two at Haiyang, and there are discussions on plans for more AP1000 plants to be sited inland of China's coastal areas.
