A turbine installed at China's Tianwang nuclear power plant using Russian equipment and technology has passed its first test with flying colors
A turbine installed at China's Tianwang nuclear power plant using Russian equipment and technology has passed its first test with flying colors, Russia's top civilian nuclear official said Friday. Sergei Kiriyenko, head of the Federal Agency for Nuclear Power, said the successful test launch of the turbine was an important step in developing nuclear energy cooperation between Russia and China. "This is a significant stage in the development of our cooperation, and the fact that the turbine was up and running at the first attempt is an unprecedented case in the construction of Russian nuclear power plants," said Kiriyenko, who is visiting the Indian city of Mumbai as part of an Asian tour. The turbine will be linked into China's electricity grid by the end of April and come online in fall, the Nuclear Power Agency said. State nuclear technology export company Atomstroiexport has been helping China build the Tianwang facility in eastern Jiangsu Province under a 1997 contract signed following an intergovernmental agreement. "This is a new step by Russia in conquering the international nuclear machinery market," a company spokesman said. The Tianwang project will use VVEP-1000/428 pressurized water nuclear reactors with improved safety systems and neutron properties.
