Unit 5 of China’s Fuqing Nuclear Power Plant, developed by China National Nuclear Corporation (CNNC), was efficiently related to the grid for the primary time on Nov 27. The plant is positioned on the coast of Xinghua Bay, close to Qianxue Village, Sanshan Town. The plant turned operational in October 2015.
Unit 5 is the world’s first pilot undertaking to make use of China’s indigenous third-generation nuclear energy expertise Hualong One, also called HPR1000.
It was confirmed on website that each one technical indicators of the unit met the design necessities and that the unit was in good situation. This laid a strong basis for the next business operation of the unit and for the highest efficiency on the planet’s first third-generation nuclear energy reactor.
Hualong One is an revolutionary third-generation pressurized water reactor with utterly impartial mental property rights, developed and designed by CNNC on the premise of greater than 30 years of nuclear energy analysis, design, manufacturing, building and operation expertise.
Hualong One, with a design lifetime of 60 years, innovatively makes use of 177 gasoline assemblies as reactor cores, which reduces its core energy density and improves its design security stage.
At current, CNNC has six nuclear energy items beneath building at residence and overseas utilizing Hualong One expertise, and the protection and high quality of the development initiatives are all beneath tight management.
