September 15, 2011 in Moscow, the 15th meeting of the Russian-Chinese sub-commission on nuclear issues within the Commission on the preparation of regular meetings of the heads of governments of Russia and China.
The sides confirmed the entry into force of the general contract for the construction of units 3 and 4 Tianwan nuclear power plant after the exchange of letters on August 17-19, the completion of legal procedures necessary for the entry into force Genkontrakta.
The signing of the General Contract for the construction of the second stage of Tianwan between "Atomstroyexport" and Jiangsu Nuclear Power Corporation (JNPC) held on November 23, 2010 in St. Petersburg. In accordance with the Master Contract, "Atomstroyexport" will build 3 and 4 units of Tianwan NPP project similar to the first stage of two power units with Russian design reactors of the VVER-1000 power capacity 1060 MW each. Design and supply of equipment non-nuclear part of the plant will carry JNPC.
The first stage of Tianwan NPP in the two blocks was built "Atomstroyexport" in 2007. Thus, the Russian company "Atomstroyexport" first among companies operating in the international market of nuclear power plant construction, has built a new generation of power units.
According to statements made by the Chinese side, on the Tianwan a record of operating in China, nuclear power plants for the duration of non-stop operation during the first fuel cycle. To date, the blocks of the first stage of Tianwan NPP generated about 66 billion kilowatt-hours. electricity.
It should be noted that this is not the only significant event in Russian-Chinese cooperation in the nuclear field this year.
Thus, in the middle of the year in China was put into operation an experimental fast neutron reactor, built by the Russian technology in close collaboration of experts of the two countries. And at the beginning of July the early commissioning of the fourth stage of a gas centrifuge plant, which was also built by the Russian technology.
The main feature of the joint Russian-Chinese cooperation has become a high-quality technical assistance and services to the Russian side and the professionalism of the management.
