China Shipbuilding NDRI Engineering Co., Ltd (CSSC-NDRI) has recently successfully signed the design contract for the maritime engineering project of Karachi Nuclear Power in Pakistan. This project is the largest nuclear power project in the country, and also the first overseas nuclear project undertaken by NDRI.

Contrary to the conventional maritime work in China, NDRI’s role has turned from a purely “designer” to “general chief” in this program, overall managing the marine hydrology, thermal effluent/low-level liquid waste, sediment and beaching stability, wave calculation and model test, seismic and water draining hydro-model…

*China Shipbuilding NDRI Engineering Co., Ltd was originally reorganized on the basis of the 9th Design and Research Institute of CSSC, now under China State Shipbuilding Corporation.
