Key words: Shandong Shidao Bay NPP, top, approval list
On this year’s Two Congresses, Mr. Wang Binghua, Chairman of SNPTC, suggested that the fourth-generation projects would be approved this year.
Opinions in the industry indicate that Shandong Shidao Bay NPP is the most likely one on the restart list as it is the first one in China applied with the fourth-generation technology.
According to the project plan, China Huaneng Group, CNEC, and Tsinghua University have jointly invested in the construction and operation of Shandong Shidao Bay NPP in the proportion of 50%, 5% and 15% respectively. It shall be the first HTGR (high temperature gas-cooled reactor) NPP in China with an aimed installed capacity of 4000 MW. It is also intended to become the world’s first 200 MW HTGR NPP bearing safety characteristics of the fourth-generation system.
