The performance inspection of the first AP1000 nuclear power main pump of the National Power Investment Corporation was completed
on October 29, 2015, the National Nuclear Power Technology Corporation, Westinghouse Electric Company and curtiswhite company jointly announced that the final performance test and post test inspection of the first AP1000 nuclear power unit reactor coolant shield main pump (hereinafter referred to as the main pump) were successfully completed. On October 29, 2015, the National Nuclear Power Technology Corporation, Westinghouse Electric Company and curtiswhite company jointly announced that the final performance test and post test inspection of the first AP1000 reactor coolant shield main pump (hereinafter referred to as the main pump) of the nuclear power unit were successfully completed. The nuclear safety expert committee organized by the National Nuclear Safety Administration conducted a comprehensive review on the design, manufacturing, test and verification results of AP1000 and the treatment of problems in the development process. According to the review, the performance of the AP1000 main pump meets the requirements of the design technical specifications
according to the plan, the first two main pumps of Sanmen Nuclear Power Unit 1 of China's AP1000 autonomous support project will be delivered to the site before December 31, 2015 to support the installation and commissioning of the world's first AP1000 nuclear power unit. The successful completion of the main pump test also paved the way for the manufacture and delivery of the remaining two main pumps of Sanmen unit 1 and the other seven main pumps of AP1000 units under construction in China and the United States
the final performance test verifies that the main pump can successfully operate for more than 1600 hours under various operating conditions of AP1000 nuclear power plant, including more than 600 start and stop cycles. This test and inspection was carried out by curtiswhite at the chesswick electrical mechanical division (EMD) plant in Pennsylvania, USA
"AP1000 main pump technology is complex, demanding and challenging. Over the past seven years, Chinese and American enterprises have worked closely to tackle key problems, and the main pump development has finally achieved success under the strict supervision and strong support of China's national nuclear safety administration and the energy administration." the cumulative number of domestic shared single vehicles is about 16million, said Wang Zhongtang, general manager of the National Nuclear Power Technology Corporation, "This success will further accelerate the construction progress of China's AP1000 project and effectively promote the development of China's advanced passive third-generation nuclear power."
"the completion of the main pump test is a major milestone in the delivery process of the world's first AP1000 unit. The whole test process adheres to the principles of rigor and self-discipline, showing that the AP1000 project team pays great attention to safety and quality. With the end of this stage, we will go further on the road of striving to provide customers with a new generation of safe, clean and reliable energy." Westinghouse's new power station and major should often check whether all moving parts of the instrument operate normally. The fixed rod should be buttered every three months, said Jeff Benjamin, senior vice president of the project
"the successful completion of the comprehensive design verification of this large innovative canned motor pump marks another major milestone for curtiswhite and its employees, demonstrating our consistent commitment to the AP1000 nuclear reactor project," said David C. Adams, chairman and CEO of curtiswhite, "In addition, as an important partner of Westinghouse and national nuclear power technology, which has absorbed the advantages of similar experimental machines at home and abroad, we look forward to the successful operation of the first AP1000 unit, and we will continue to be committed to supporting China's growing nuclear power projects."
