At the ATMEA Company, we are committed to delivering a highly cost-effective solution in the medium-power pressurized water reactor (PWR) range. The ATMEA1 reactor offers superior economic performance while meeting the highest level of safety and reliability available on the market today.
A lifetime of outstandingly economical power generation
The ATMEA1 reactor’s overall cost to buy and operate is highly competitive, thanks to the following:
• High efficiency: Thermal efficiency of 37% results in 10% less fuel consumption and radioactive waste production than existing nuclear power plants.
• High availability: Operating availability of more than 92% over the entire plant lifespan results in low operating and maintenance costs.
• Longer plant life: A 60-year plant life increases return on investment.
• Highly competitive generation costs: High thermal efficiency, high availability and flexibility of operation reduce generation costs throughout plant lifetime.
• Reduced decommissioning burden: Decommissioning is more easily performed due to early-stage design considerations.
