Fuqing Unit 5, the first global reactor demonstration project of CNNC's HPR 1000, completed dome lifting on May 25 2017, 15 days ahead of schedule, and entered the equipment installation phase.
It is the world’s largest and highest dome lifting ever undertaken in nuclear construction projects.
“That the dome was lifted 15 days in advance proves that CNNC can construct the HPR 1000 which is a national key project in the field of nuclear power,” said Wang Shoujun, chairman of CNNC.
HPR1000 indicates China's ascent into the rank of countries with advanced nuclear technology, said Qian Zhimin, President of CNNC.
Xing Ji, chief designer of HPR1000, said China owns the complete intellectual property rights of HPR1000 and the launch of the pilot project will help pave the way for China's nuclear power equipment export in the future.
