High power proton linacs for different applications are considered. CW proton linac with output energy 1 GeV and beam current 10-30 mA is proposed for power production during weapon plutonium conversion inside thorium circle. The accelerator for APT (the Accelerator Production of Tritium) Project is a 100-mA CW proton linac with output energy of 1500-2000 MeV. Depending on the tritium production capacity a 250-300 mA CW proton linac with output energy of 1000-1500 MeV also may be used. The last one can be used also for Accelerator-Driven Transmutation Technology (ADTT) as a possible means of destruction of nuclear waste and of generating nuclear power. Conceptual design of CW superconducting proton linac - driver for ADT demonstration facility for the beam power up to 100 MW is considered. Linac layout, main systems and typical cryomodule are described.
