Rolls-Royce Signs Nuclear Plant Controls Contract in China

Rolls-Royce has signed a contract to modernise rod control system equipment in 14 of CGN’s CPR1000 nuclear power units in China.

It’s the first contract of its kind for Rolls-Royce in China and was signed with CGN subsidiary, Suzhou Nuclear Power Research Institute (SNPI). The newly formed partnership will also allow the CGN group to achieve cost reduction and efficiency improvements for the operations of its power plants.

Liu Xiaowei, China Country Head, Rolls-Royce Nuclear, said: “SNPI is a leading nuclear technology institution in China, dedicated to ensuring safe and efficient operation of power plants.

“CGN is a much-valued customer of Rolls-Royce. We’re pleased with the trust they place in us and will continue providing the optimal service solutions to support Chinese nuclear plants modernisation.”

Meanwhile, Rolls-Royce has also signed a new agreement with Hongyanhe and renewed contracts for long-term services with Daya Bay and Ningde power plants.

Rolls-Royce has been supplying Instrumentation and Control (I&C) systems since 1994 when the Qinshan and Daya Bay nuclear power plants were opened.

Today, Rolls-Royce supplies safety-critical instrumentation and controls technology to more than 70% of nuclear reactors in operation or under construction in China, as well as emergency diesel generators to almost 40% of Chinese units.
