The EU-APWR (EU-Advanced Pressurized Water Reactor) is the world's largest class Nuclear Power Plants for European utilities providing 1,700 MWe class output offering the highest levels of safety and operating performance.
The EU-APWR design was conceptually based on the 1,538 MWe 4 loop plant design slated for construction in Japan, with modifications to comply with European regulations and customer requirements. Compared to conventional pressurized water reactors, the EU-APWR has been engineered for greater scale and larger generating capacity. It achieves the world's highest level of thermal efficiency plus significant improvements in operating economy and safety, the collective result of new automated safety systems and innovative design enhancements. Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd. was awarded a certificate of compliance to the European Utility Requirements for the Generation 3+ EU-APWR on October 23, 2014.
