Atomic Energy of Canada Limited.. In 1986 the offshore utilities that own CANDU units in.. Argentina.. Korea.. joined COG.. Following the accident at  ...   of a number of PHWR power reactors of CANDU design, joined COG in 1989.. With construction of CANDU reactors at.. Cernavoda.. Qinshan.. , the respective utilities in Romania and China joined COG in 1991 and 1999, respectively.. Under the original agreement Ontario Hydro was the administrator of COG reporting to a Directing Committee comprised of representatives of the four Canadian Members.. However, in 1999 COG was registered as a not-for-profit corporation and a Board of Directors was appointed to replace the previous Directing Committee..

  • Title: CANDU Reactors
    Descriptive info: CANDU Reactors.. CANTEACH Site.. Nuclear FAQ.. Industry News.. Environment.. Glossary.. Image Library.. Nuclear Links.. What is CANDU.. CANDU-specific features and advantages.. Highlights of CANDU History.. Did you know that.. How and Why is CANDU designed the way it is.. (pdf 63K).. CANDU stands for.. CAN.. ada.. D.. euterium.. U.. ranium.. It's a Canadian-designed power reactor of PHWR type (Pressurized Heavy Water Reactor) that uses heavy water (deuterium oxide) for moderator and coolant, and natural uranium for fuel.. Use of natural uranium as a fuel.. CANDU is the most efficient of all reactors in using uranium: it uses about 15% less uranium than a pressurized water reactor for each megawatt of electricity produced.. Use of natural uranium widens the source of supply and makes fuel fabrication easier.. Most countries can manufacture the relatively inexpensive fuel.. There is no need for uranium enrichment facility.. Fuel reprocessing is not needed, so costs, facilities and waste disposal associated with reprocessing are avoided.. CANDU reactors can be fuelled with a number of other low-fissile content fuels, including spent fuel from light water reactors.. This reduces dependency on uranium in the event of future supply shortages and price increases.. Use of heavy water as a moderator.. Heavy water (deuterium oxide) is highly efficient because of its low neutron absorption and affords the highest neutron economy of all commercial reactor systems.. As a result chain reaction in the reactor is possible with natural uranium fuel.. Heavy water used in CANDU reactors is readily available.. It can be produced locally, using proven technology.. Heavy water lasts beyond the life of the plant and can be re-used.. CANDU reactor core design.. Reactor core comprising small diameter fuel channels rather that one large pressure vessel.. Allows on-power refueling - extremely high capability factors are possible.. The moveable fuel bundles in the pressure tubes allow maximum burn-up of all the fuel in the reactor core.. Extends life expectancy of the reactor because major core components like fuel channels are accessible for repairs when needed.. To learn more about CANDU reactors visit.. CANTEACH site.. ,..
