The Main Pump is ready for “Hualong”Zhangzhou Unit 1 &2

On October 26, 2017, The Review Meeting of the Design Proposal of the Primary Pump for Zhangzhou Units 1 & 2—a project of “Hualong No.1” (the convergence of technologies of ACP1000 launched by CNNC and ACPR1000+ by CGN) located in Fujian province, was held in Lingang Shanghai. The expert team led by the academician Mr. Ye Qizhen listened to the briefing report on the main pump unit design program. The Expert Group collaborated with Nuclear Power Institute of China and China Nuclear Power Engineering Co., Ltd. carried out an in-depth discussion on the main pump design review related issues.

The Expert Group believes that the plan of Shanghai Electric-KSB Nuclear Power Pump & Valve Co., Ltd. meets the requirements of the technical specifications, in strict accordance with the design contract. The main performance parameters are in line with the specifications. The Expert Group believes that the design of the main pump unit is reasonable, technically mature, safe and reliable to meet the overall design requirements of the Hualong nuclear power.


Note: Ye Qizhen

Dr.Ye Qizhen, a specialist in field of nuclear reactor and nuclear power generation technology, was born in September 1934. He graduated from Electric Power Engineering Department of Shanghai Jiaotong university in 1955, and received Candidate (PhD) degree from Moscow Energetic Institute in December 1960. He was elected the academician of Chinese Academy of Engineering in December 2003.

In 1960s he participates in Chinese first production reactor design. In 1970s, as a chief design engineer he organized the design of production and power generation reactor. In early 1980s, he established Computer Application Institute of Nuclear Industry, and became president of the Institute.

From 1986 year on base of self-reliance he began to build first in China 600M We commercial nuclear power plant—Qinshan Nuclear Power Project phase 2.As a project chief design engineer he presided feasibility studies, general design, and organized the review of preliminary design and made decisions for important technical issues. During the construction period, he organized to constitute the construction schemes for important technical items, and dealt with important nonconformity problems. He presided the testing program on built reactor for reactor internals flow induced vibration, and first in China executed this test in success. In 2003,the research achievement—“Reactor internals flow induced vibration on built reactor testing”—received second class Award of the Science and Technology Progress Prize by CDSTC. Design of Qinshan Nuclear Power Project phase 2 has a number of integrated innovations, including new reactor core design, safety systems improvement, power generation optimization, etc.  In 2004, this project received first class Award of the National Prize for Science and Technology Progress.
