Mitsubishi Electric Sacks 10billion yen Order
The installed capacity of nuclear power plants in China is expected to increase from the current capacity of 9,000 MW to 60,000 MW by 2020, and up to 160,000 MW by 2030. Plans call for more than 50 new nuclear power plants to be constructed.
The order means that Mitsubishi Electric’s digital I&C system has now been adopted in 8 out of 10 CPR1000-type nuclear power plants under construction in China; and it raises the possibility that the system will continue to be applied as a standard in CPR1000-type nuclear power plants yet to be built.
Chinese self-designed pressurized water reactor with capacity of 1,000 MW is an improved nuclear power reactor based on a platform designed by France. The first delivery will be in April 2011 and the start of operation is scheduled for 2013.
