This paper was presented earlier this year at the Tenth International Conference On Nuclear Engineering (ICONE-10). It summarizes the main features and characteristics of the ACR-700™, the reference design for Atomic Energy of Canada Limited's (AECL) next-generation Advanced CANDU Reactor™. The plant design is based on the adaptation of existing CANDU® components. It uses slightly enriched uranium fuel, the existing CANDU fuel channel module, along with light water coolant and a heavy water moderator and reflector.
