Technology > ACP100


The small modular reactor (ACP100) is a third-generation innovative PWR technology independently developed by CNNC, featuring high safety, short construction cycle, economic competitiveness and flexibility in application. The ACP100 can meet the diversified demands for power generation, heat-power cogeneration and water-power cogeneration in densely populated areas, inland and coastal areas.

Mature,safe and reliable technology

Short construction period and economical

Supply of electric power to medium/small
grids islands and remote areas

Supply of heat and power to cities

Supply of steam for industry use

Provision of seawater desalinization to
coastal lacking fresh water


Modular design, short construction period and thrifty land-use

Low single-unit electric power catering for various needs
Integrated reactor layout Small dimension equipment,convenient
Integrated manufacturing, transportation and speedy on-site installation
Simplified auxiliary facilities, thrifty land-use
Environmentally friendly in the vicinity of urban areas and utilities

assured safety

Meeting the highest safety standards

  • Inherent safety, fewer radioactive sources/items,
    integration of multiple defense lines

  • Containment installed in the shielding building,
    avoiding the overpressure failure and radioactive leakage

  • Fully passive safety facilities, independent of external
    power supply, nonintervention period of more than three days

  • Underground layout of reactor building, enhanced protection
    against external hazards
