The bottom of the steel containment is installed at China's first small modular reactor ACP-100 (Linglong One) under construction at the Changjiang site on Hainan Island.
The bottom was assembled from 50 steel plates. It was placed in its original position on a concrete foundation.
The ACP-100 steel containment consists of three parts - the bottom, the cylinder and the lid.
Construction of the ACP-100 small modular reactor started on July 13, 2021 and will take 58 months.
The Shidao Bay-1 unit consists of two HTR-PM reactors combined with a common 211 MWe turbine.
A ceremony commemorating the start of Unit 3 construction was held at the site of the first Turkish nuclear power plant Akkuyu.
The dummy fuel bundles for CFR-600 are already manufactured for testing.
Hero of the day
On March 22, 2021, VVER-1200 reactor-enabled Unit 6 was commissioned at the Leningrad NPP. Andrey Petrov, Director General of Rosenergoatom (part of the Electric Power Division of ROSATOM), signed the corresponding order.
