Sino foreign cooperation to promote clean energy cause at 17:00 on December 13, Beijing time, Guangdong Taishan nuclear power unit 1 completed 168 hours of demonstration operation and was ready for commercial operation, becoming the world's first EPR (European advanced pressurized water reactor) third-generation nuclear power unit with commercial operation conditions. Heyu, chairman of China Guangdong Nuclear Power Group, said that the commissioning of Taishan nuclear power unit 1 has provided valuable experience and solutions for the construction of similar units worldwide

the "EPR world's first reactor"

Taishan nuclear power plant is the largest cooperation project between China and France in the energy field. The project is constructed and operated by Taishan nuclear power joint venture Co., Ltd., which is jointly invested and established by China Guangdong Nuclear Power Group, France electric power group and Guangdong Electric power group. The plant site is located in Chixi Town, Taishan City, Guangdong Province. Six pressurized water reactor nuclear power units are planned to be built here, and two are planned to be built in phase I project. EPR third generation nuclear power technology is adopted. The unit capacity of each unit is 1.75 million KW, which is the largest nuclear power unit in the world. This technology has absorbed the operation experience and technology of PWR nuclear power units accumulated internationally in the past 40 years. The main technology has been tested for thousands of years by 357 PWR nuclear power units operating in the world for more than 40 years. It meets the European user standards and the standards of the International Atomic Energy Agency, and also meets the requirements of China's nuclear safety regulations. Its safety has been significantly improved

the construction of unit 1 and unit 2 of Taishan nuclear power plant started in 2009 and 2010 respectively. Before Taishan, the Olkiluoto nuclear power plant in Finland, which also uses EPR technology, started construction in May, 2005. Unit 3 of framanville nuclear power plant in France also started construction at the end of 2007. Taishan units 1 and 2 are only the third and fourth EPR nuclear power units in the world

however, in the actual construction process, the EPR projects under construction in Finland and France fell behind those in China, and unit 1 of Taishan nuclear power plant came from behind. On April 10, 2018, Taishan nuclear power plant began to load, successfully generated power on June 29, and successfully met the conditions for commercial operation on December 13. Taishan Yinghe technology said that unit 1 of the nuclear power plant was the first reactor of similar units when it was investigated by the institution, and it continued to export successful practices and experiences to similar units abroad

guolimin, general manager of Taishan nuclear power joint venture Co., Ltd., said that the reason why Taishan nuclear power unit 1 can become the first reactor project of EPR global third-generation nuclear power units is due to the continuous nuclear power construction and operation experience accumulated by CGNPC for more than 30 years, the long-term mutually beneficial and win-win strategic cooperation between China and France in the field of nuclear power, and the fact that the project construction brings together important participants with rich nuclear power construction experience and strong ability in the world, It has also established a high-level coordination mechanism with 9 major participating units to jointly promote the EPR global first reactor project of Taishan nuclear power

in addition, in the early stage of the project, we fully absorbed the experience of two European EPR leading projects, and always adhered to the basic principle of "safety first, quality first, and pursuit of excellence" in the process of project construction

China's experience is shared by the world

the introduction of EPR technology to build Taishan nuclear power plant is an important decision made by the Chinese government from the height of national energy strategy, and it is also a milestone in the field of China France energy cooperation. On november26,2007, a series of agreements on Sino French cooperation in the construction of Taishan EPR project were signed. p>

as the largest energy cooperation project between China and France, the construction of Taishan nuclear power plant is of positive significance to the development of nuclear power industry in China and France. The two units of Taishan nuclear power phase I project adopt the mode of Sino foreign cooperation, joint design and joint construction, which effectively promotes the cooperation between China and France in the field of third-generation nuclear power technology and is of great significance to the development of Sino French nuclear power equipment manufacturing industry

Taishan nuclear power unit 1 unexpectedly became the "world's first EPR reactor project" and a model of "sharing China's experience with the world". When the AA (8000) series conductor aluminum alloy was wantonly used to manufacture cables with voltage levels above 10kV and in the field of wire laying and utilization, yuetaishan nuclear power unit 1 began to load, the vice president of French electric power jussa spoke highly of CGNPC Taishan nuclear power station, which came from behind. He said, "it is very gratifying that Taishan nuclear power unit 1 has become the world's first reactor. As long as one EPR is put into operation worldwide, it has proved that EPR is a feasible third-generation nuclear power technology route. Taishan nuclear power unit 1 has solved the problems of other EPR projects."

He Yu said that the Taishan nuclear power project has provided valuable experience and solutions for the construction of similar units worldwide, and will play a demonstration and supporting role for the cooperation between China Guangdong nuclear power and EDF in the construction of the Hinkley point c nuclear power project in the UK

Le Wei, chairman and CEO of EDF, said that as the world's first EPR unit put into commercial operation, the operation of Taishan nuclear power unit 1 is an outstanding achievement of the entire French nuclear power industry, which proves its ability to develop the third generation nuclear power technology in accordance with the highest safety and quality standards. At present, many countries need to achieve carbon dioxide emission reduction while meeting the growth of electricity demand. EPR technology provides an important way to meet this challenge. "At the same time, Taishan project also shows our willingness to work with important partners such as CGNPC to develop EPR projects in the global market."

This year marks the 40th anniversary of reform and opening up, and Sino French nuclear power cooperation has gone through 40 years. Gaoligang, President of China Guangdong Nuclear Power Co., Ltd., said that China France nuclear power cooperation began with the Daya Bay nuclear power plant, the first megawatt nuclear power plant in Chinese Mainland. In the 1980s, CGNPC introduced French M310 technology and management experience, purchased main equipment from France and the United Kingdom, and cooperated with international teams to build Daya Bay nuclear power plant, achieving a breakthrough of zero for large-scale commercial nuclear power plants in Chinese Mainland. The total investment of Daya Bay nuclear power station is up to 4billion US dollars. It is the largest Sino foreign joint venture project in China at the early stage of reform and opening up, and it is also a landmark project of China's reform and opening up. It undertakes the historical mission of "starting from a high starting point for nuclear power" in China

in the 1990s, on the basis of Daya Bay nuclear power station, CGNPC continued to cooperate with France in the construction of phase I of Ling'ao nuclear power station, promoting China's nuclear power localization from 1% of Daya Bay to 30%

in the 21st century, CGNPC and EDF once again discussed the development status of domestic spring testing machines with the help of relevant national policies to jointly build Taishan nuclear power station using French EPR third generation nuclear power technology. Thanks to the joint efforts of both sides, Taishan nuclear power plant has become the first EPR reactor in the world. Among them, the Hinkley point C project and the setsville C project (not yet under construction) use the French EPR third-generation nuclear power technology, which is controlled by the French electric power group and shared by the China Guangdong Nuclear Power Group. The bradwell B project will use the Chinese third-generation nuclear power technology Hualong 1, which is controlled by the China Guangdong Nuclear Power Group and shared by the French electric power group, and take the China Guangdong Fangchenggang nuclear power phase II project as the reference power station

on December 11, 2018, Hinkley point C project successfully completed the pouring of the first tank of concrete for the nuclear island, and the construction of 4500 ton nuclear island public Raft Foundation began. At present, the site at Hinkley point C is busy; Bradwell B project is carrying out site survey, while hualong-1 technology is undergoing the general design review (GDA) of the UK regulatory authority. At present, GDA has entered the third stage. Based on its accumulated experience in the UK nuclear power market, EDF provided strong support for CGN in the GDA review process

from Daya Bay to Taishan nuclear power, and then to the British nuclear power project, nuclear power has become a key area of cooperation in China's opening-up, as well as an area of in-depth cooperation between China and France, and has achieved fruitful cooperation results in the 40 years of reform and opening-up. In the future, CGNPC will continue to work closely with France to jointly promote the development of clean energy in both countries
