AP1000® RCP Reaches Full Qualification
Westinghouse Electric Company, Curtiss-Wright Corporation and State Nuclear Power Technology Corporation (SNPTC) of China announced today the successful completion of final performance testing and post-test inspections of the lead AP1000 ® plant reactor coolant pump (RCP). Throughout the testing, the reactor coolant pump performance met the design requirements which are necessary to support safe and reliable AP1000 plant operation.
The achievement will result in the shipment of the first and second Sanmen Unit 1 RCPs for arrival on site by Dec. 31, 2015, to support key upcoming project milestones at Sanmen Unit 1, the world’s first AP1000 plant. Successful test completion also will lead to fabrication and delivery of the remaining two reactor coolant pumps for Sanmen Unit 1, and the reactor coolant pumps for the seven additional AP1000 units currently under construction in China and the United States.
The final performance testing has verified successful reactor coolant pump operation during a full range of AP1000 plant operating conditions for more than 1,600 total hours, including more than 600 start-and-stop cycles. Extensive China regulator reviews and detailed post-test inspections are now complete and confirmed that the reactor coolant pump performed as designed during the final performance testing. Curtiss-Wright conducted the testing and inspection at its Electro-Mechanical Division (EMD) facility in Cheswick, Pennsylvania. (USA).
“Conclusion of the reactor coolant pump testing program is a major milestone in the delivery of the world’s first AP1000 plant. The rigor and discipline applied throughout the testing process demonstrate the safety and quality focus of the AP1000 project team. With the completion of this phase, we are now positioned for the next steps in providing our customers with a new generation of safe, clean, reliable energy,” said Jeff Benjamin, Westinghouse senior vice president, New Plants and Major Projects.
“Successful completion of the extensive design verification program for this innovative large canned motor pump represents another significant milestone achievement for Curtiss-Wright and its employees, and demonstrates our on-going commitment to the AP1000 nuclear reactor program,” said David C. Adams, chairman and CEO of Curtiss-Wright Corporation. “Furthermore, as a key partner to Westinghouse and SNPTC, we look forward to the successful operation of the first AP1000 plant and we remain committed to supporting China’s growing nuclear power program.”
“Designing and manufacturing the technically sophisticated and demanding AP1000 reactor coolant pump has been a close, collaborative effort. After seven years of hard work among China and U.S. companies and a rigorous regulatory review and strong support of the National Nuclear Safety Administration (NNSA) and National Energy Administration (NEA) of China, development of the reactor coolant pump has succeeded,” said Zhongtang WANG, president of State Nuclear Power Technology Corporation. “This success will further accelerate China AP1000 project construction progress as well as boost advanced passive Generation III nuclear power development in China.”
