NG CANDU is the “Next Generation” CANDU® reactor, aimed at producing electrical power at a capital cost significantly less than that of the current reactor designs. A key element of cost reduction is the use of H2 O as coolant and Slightly Enriched Uranium fuel in a tight D2 O-moderated lattice. The innovations in the CANDU core physics result in substantial improvements in economics as well as significant enhancements in reactor licensability, controllability, and waste reduction. The full-core coolant-void reactivity in NG CANDU is about −3 mk. Power coefficient is substantially negative. Fuel burnup is about three times the current natural-uranium burnup.
