Unit 5 of the Fuqing Nuclear Power Plant of CNNC, the first demonstrative project of the HPR1000, accomplished the principal assembly of its dome, laying a solid foundation for further hoisting installations.
With a hemispheric shape, the HPR1000’s dome, weighing around 305 tons, was installed above a cylindrical steel liner measuring 45.13 meters high.
Since the construction of the site, the Fuqing Nuclear Power Plant has coordinated with many partners on the project via drawing future plans ahead, enhancing management during the construction process and overcoming unfavorable factors.
To ensure the well-running progress of the project, the Fuqing Nuclear Power Plant has proactively made a technology schedule and logical arrangement based upon the actual situation, further optimizing the construction duration of the dome assembly.(From CNNC)
