  • CANDU is the Canadian engineered and Canadian produced nuclear power reactor.

    Canada's Potential and Our Political Will

  • Some years ago, the Canadian government began a program for developing and selling nuclear power reactors, called CANDU reactors.

    Analog Science Fiction and Fact

  • There is a Canadian design, called "CANDU", which requires heavy water as a moderator, but uses refined but unenriched uranium as a fuel.

    The New Republic - All Feed

  • Nuclear power (such as the CANDU reactor) has recently been installed in China for less than this, so the numbers are reasonable.

    Steve Kirsch: Cash for Coal Anyone?

  • The CANDU and RBMK types have pressure tubes (rather than a pressure vessel enclosing the reactor core) and can be refuelled under load by disconnecting individual pressure tubes.

    Nuclear power reactor

  • The PHWR reactor design has been developed since the 1950s in Canada as the CANDU (CANada Deuterium Uranium), and more recently also in India.

    Nuclear power reactor

  • Some are evolutionary from the PWR, BWR and CANDU designs, some are more radical departures.

    Nuclear power reactor

  • A CANDU fuel assembly consists of a bundle of 37 half-meter-long fuel rods (ceramic fuel pellets in zircaloy tubes) along with a support structure, with 12 bundles lying end to end in a fuel channel.

    Nuclear power reactor

  • Regulatory confidence in safety is enhanced by a small negative void reactivity for the first time in CANDU, and utilising other passive safety features as well as two independent and fast shutdown systems.

    Advanced nuclear power reactors

  • Compared to what AECL has spent on CANDU, we could bring the Wiffle Ball to Canada for a fraction of the cost.
