Posted in the People's Daily on June 12, 2003 and at:
Reactor at Qinshan Nuclear Plant Goes on Stream
heavy-water reactor generating unit at the Qinshan nuclear power
east China's Zhejiang province went into operation on Thursday
and is expected to begin commercial power generation in July.
The second heavy-water reactor generating unit at the Qinshan
plant in east China's Zhejiang province went into operation
morning and is expected to begin commercial power generation
The unit was successfully tested on Monday morning, and all
features met design requirements.
Sources from the
Qinshan Third-Phase Nuclear Power Plant Co. Ltd. said that
construction and management of the complex had been successful.
system's design, manufacture, installation and debugging were
which had laid a solid basis for power generation on Thursday.
The third phase of the Qinshan Nuclear Power Plant located in Haiyan
the first commercial heavy-water nuclear reactor project with two
turbines, is also the largest project financed jointly by China and
The generating units have a capacity of 728,000 kw each,
with the reactors
being made in China with technology imported from
Canada. The reactors, with
a lifespan of 40 years, are expected to
produce about 10 billion kwh of
electricity each year after both
generating units are operational.
The first such generating unit has
been safely operating at full capacity
since late December of 2002 when
it began commercial power generation.
