Candu Energy, based on its highly successful CANDU 6 (C6) reactors proven on four continents, is preparing to launch its C6 referenced Generation III products: Enhanced CANDU 6 (EC6), the natural uranium optimized, and Advanced Fuel CANDU Reactor (AFCR), the alternative fuel optimized, CANDU reactors. The AFCR design is based on the EC6 design with appropriate design changes to the reactor core to cater for the alternative fuel cycles and post Fukushima improvement.. The paper reviews the common design basis of these reactors and then discusses the unique advantages and market specific features for each product. The AFCR implementation plan for China is also discussed.
