Gen III+(*), 1200 MWe class pressure tube reactor. It is a light-water cooled,
heavy-water moderated pressure tube reactor derived from the well-established
CANDU line. The ACR-1000 retains the basic, well-proven, features of the CANDU
plant design such as a modular, horizontal fuel channel core, a
low-temperature heavy-water moderator, water-filled vault, two independent
diverse shutdown systems, on-power fuelling and reactor building accessibility
for on-power maintenance.
