European Advanced Boiling Water Reactor (EU-ABWR) is developed by Toshiba. EU-ABWR accommodates an armored reactor building against Airplane Crash (APC), severe accident mitigation systems, the N+2 principle in safety systems, the diversity principle and a large output of 1600 MWe. These features enable EU-ABWR’s design objectives and principles to be consistent with the safety requirements in the European market and the safety requirements of Western European Nuclear Regulators’ Association (WENRA). In this paper, mitigative strategies against the Fukushima Accident such as Loss of normal Ultimate Heat Sink (LUHS), Long-term Station Black Out (SBO) and Severe Accident (SA) are summarized.
