MHI submits US nuclear reactor design certification application to NRC

7 January 2008 - Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI) has submitted an application for standard design certification (DC) for its 1700 MW class advanced pressurized water reactor for the US market (US-APWR), to the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC).

MHI completed the DC application preparation process within a short period of about a year and a half, as the company had planned, and the completeness of its technical documents already submitted to the NRC for pre-application review has been acknowledged.

TXU Power in Dallas, Texas - now Luminant Power - has already selected the US-APWR design for its planned new nuclear power plants.

MHI's submission of the DC application indicates that the US-APWR project is now progressing steadily toward actual plant construction.
