KHNP CRI has developed APR+ nuclear power plant since 2007, which is GEN III+ model with 1500 MWe capacity. To develop safer nuclear power plant than APR1400, we investigated advanced design features of ALWR being constructed in Korea and being developed/constructed in foreign countries. We applied the advanced design features and lessons learned from Fukushima accident to develop APR+ standard design suitable for both domestic construction and overseas construction business. One economic assessments have performed during safety design improvement phase(2013.1 ~ 2015.12) of APR+. The result of the economic analysis for APR+ safety inhancement design showed that APR+ N-th plant is about 39.2% more economical than coal-fired 1,000MW power plant. Also APR+ plant is more cost advantage over foreign advanced nation ALWRs.
