Hualong One pilot nuke project to take shape

CHINA’S first pilot nuclear power project using Hualong One technology, a domestically developed third-generation reactor design, will soon take shape with its containment dome expected to be installed within the next two days.

Yu Peigen, deputy general manager of China National Nuclear Corp, told a press conference yesterday that its No. 5 unit in Fuqing in Fujian Province was ready for the dome installation, slated for today or tomorrow.

A hemispherical dome, 340 tons in weight and 16.8 meters in diameter, will be installed by crane on the reactor featuring Hualong One design, said Yang Ming, a member of the project management.

Yu said: “The installation, if successful, will mark the completion of the construction work of the pilot and the beginning of the assembling stage.”
