IHI supplies such key components as reactor pressure vessels, primary containment vessels,and piping systems. We develop and construct nuclear fuel cycle systems as well as supply components for conventional boiling water reactors (BWRs) and advanced boiling-water reactors (ABWRs). We have also begun supplying equipment for pressurized-water reactors (PWRs). Moving forward, we plan to engage in decontamination and decommissioning of nuclear power facilities.
Components for Nuclear Power Plants
Primary containment vessel for BWR nuclear power plant
Steel vessels are used as primary containment for nuclear reactors and auxiliary equipment.
Vessels made by reinforced concrete with steel liners have also been used recently.
Reactor pressure vessel for BWR nuclear power plant
This kind of pressure vessel for nuclear power plant constructed of extremely thick steel plate lined inside with stainless steel cladding.
Containment vessel for PWR nuclear power plant
Steel Vessel is used as containment vessel to contain reactor vessel, steam generator, etc. IHI is supplying the vessels to plants overseas.

Facilities for Nuclear Fuel Cycle Plants
Radioactive waste vitrification facility
In this facility, highly radioactive liquid waste is mixed with molten glass, poured into stainless steel canisters, cooled, and then solidified.
Waste receptacle and storage facility
When domestic power utility companies have nuclear fuel recycled abroad, high level radioactive waste is vitrified. This vitrified waste is received by and stored in this facility.
