Installation of CA20 module at China’s Lianjiang NPP 1

The 1,000-tonne CA20 module has been installed at unit 1 of China’s Lianjiang NPP in Guangdong province. This is the first large-scale module of the first phase of the Lianjiang nuclear power project, marking the No. 1 unit nuclear island.
The CA20 module is a box-shaped steel plate wall structure. The total hoisting weight is about 1,049 tonnes. The CA20 module will contain plant and equipment for used fuel storage, transmission, the heat exchanger and waste collection, among other things.
With a total investment of CNY130bn (USD 18.1bn), Lianjiang NPP is designed to have six CAP1000 pressurised water reactors, the first of which is scheduled to be operational in 2028. The Lianjiang NPP is the State Power Investment Corporation’s (SPIC’s) first coastal nuclear power project in Guangdong Province. It is expected to run in conjunction with hydrogen plants and power storage stations in the area as part of an integrated energy base.
