Areva-led consortium has signed contract with China Nuclear Power Engineering, and Jiangsu Nuclear Power to supply emergency diesel generators for Tianwan Nuclear Power Station.
Under the contract, the consortium will also provide associated safety and non-safety instrumentation and control (I&C) systems, and electrical systems of generators and switchgears.
In addition, Areva will monitor the installation of generators, oversee commissioning, and provide training to the operating personnel.
Areva's emergency diesel generators are designed to provide power supply to all safety-related systems in case of planned/unplanned power cut at the station power.
Areva's Installed Base Business Unit executive VP Philippe Samama said, "With this new contract, JNPC demonstrates once again its confidence in our technology following the digital safety I&C contract for Tianwan 3 and 4 awarded in 2011."
The unit 3 and 4 of the Tianwan Nuclear Power Station are scheduled to start commercial operation in February and December 2018, respectively.
