CAREM concept is based in a cost effective primary system configuration. The use of an integrated primary cooling system, self-pressurization, internal control rod drives and boron free coolant are many of the distinctive features that characterize the system. In this paper CAREM is presented. This is an advanced reactor concept with new engineering solutions based in specific developments, the mature engineering of the prototype CAREM-25 and the wide worldwide experience in safe LWR operation.
