Alstom has won an order worth close to €100 million from Chinese industrial group Dong Fang Electric Limited (DECL) to supply equipment and services for six 1000 MW steam turbine-generator packages for three nuclear power plants in China. The power plants are NingDe Phase II (units 3 and 4), FuQing Phase II (units 3 and 4) and TianWan Phase III (units 5 and 6).
The order comes after Chinese energy utilities China Guangdong Nuclear Power Co (CGNPC) and China National Nuclear Corporation (CNNC) signed an agreement with DECL for the design, manufacture and supply of the steam turbine-generator packages. The Alstom model selected for the three projects is based on the first unit of Ling Ao Phase II (Ling Ao 3), which was delivered by Alstom and went into commercial production on September 20, 2010, after a remarkably short commissioning and start-up time.
The turbine-generator package includes the GIGATOP 4 pole turbogenerator, moisture separator reheater (MSR), the condenser, the low pressure heater and ARABELLE™ half-speed steam turbine, all designed by using Alstom's turbine-generator technologies. Alstom’s ARABELLE™ turbine is suitable for all reactor types and is globally renowned for providing higher efficiency and reduced installation and maintenance costs.
Alstom has already provided its turbine-generator packages to the Chinese power plants Ling Ao Phase II, HongYanHe Phase I and II, Ningde Phase I, FuQing Phase I and Fangjiashan Phase I as well as Taishan, China’s first nuclear power plant to use the EPR (Evolutionary Power Reactor).
