The Japan Atomic Energy Agency will run Monju (fast reactor) at zero output for two months (April/May 2010). They plan to achieve a 40 percent output next year and 100 percent output in 2012. Full-scale operation is planned in or after 2013

A Joint Venture will design and produce a prototype Russian 100 MW lead-bismuth fast reactor (SVBR-100) with a view of commercializing the technology.

SVBR-100 is being developed at the enterprises owned by Rosatom. The JV’s short-term plans include completing the RND for the project and producing a detailed design of the pilot reactor and principal equipment and also obtaining necessary licenses. A pilot power generating unit based on SVBR-100 technology is scheduled to be commissioned around 2019. IAEA’s estimates show that some 500-1000 power generating units based on small-to-medium reactors can be launched in the period till 2040. The SVBR technology could account for 10% to 15% of the global nuclear power market of small-to-medium capacity.
