Steam turbines cleared all the performance tests: MHPS

08 March 2019

Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems, Ltd. (MHPS) has announced that the steam turbine generation systems supplied for the Sanmen and Haiyang nuclear power plants in China have cleared all functional, safety confirmation, and other required performance tests. Full-fledged operations have already begun for Sanmen Unit 1 and Haiyang Unit 1, and this completes the work for all four units (total 5,000 MW) at the next-generation nuclear power facilities built in China.

The Sanmen nuclear power plant was built by Sanmen Nuclear Power Co., Ltd. in Sanmen, Zhejiang Province, while the Haiyang Nuclear Power Plant was built by Shandong Nuclear Power Co., Ltd. in Haiyang, Shandong Province. Each facility has two units, each with an output of 1,250 MW. MHPS handled the designs for the turbine, heat exchanger, and auxiliary equipment, and transferred the technology. MHPS also manufactured and provided 12 low-pressure turbines, four high-pressure turbines, the main valves, and other equipment for all the units within the facilities.

MHPS will continue to contribute to resolving the global issues of stable energy supplies, economic development, and reducing the environmental load by providing steam turbines for safe, highly reliable nuclear power generation facilities.
