On 21 April 2023, Atommash – a production site of AEM-Technologies, JSC (a part of the machine-building division of Rosatom — Atomenergomash) shipped a reactor pressure vessel and four steam generators for Tianwan NPS Power Unit 7 (China), which is under construction according to the Russian Project.
The equipment will be shipped in a combined way: the goods will be delivered to a special berth by road. After being loaded on barges, the sets of equipment will be transported through waterways to the seaport of Saint Petersburg, and then the cargo will be delivered to China by sea.
Igor Kotov, General Director of Atomenergomash JSC said that this is a significant event for domestic nuclear power engineering, which explicitly confirms the leadership of Russian technologies on the international market.
“Atommash demonstrates once again that it is ready to cope with any challenging production tasks. In its turn, Machine-building Division is most grateful to the Engineering Division Management Company - Atomsroyexport, JSC, in the person of Mr. Bannik and Mr. Lebedev. We also express appreciation to our foreign partners: Chinese colleagues for cooperation in the construction of Tianwan NPS Unit 7 and Indian colleagues for cooperation in the construction of Kudankulam NPP Unit 5,” – Igor Kotov, General Director of Atomenergomash, JSC said.
Tianwan NPS is located in the province of Jiangsu, China. Power units 1 and 2 with VVER-1000 reactors were put into warranty operation in 2007, and power units 3 and 4 were put into commercial operation in 2018. On 8 June 2018, an intergovernmental protocol and a framework agreement for construction of Tianwan NPS power units 7 and 8 with Russian reactors VVER-1200 (new 3+ generation) were signed.
Russia and China have long-term friendly and good-neighborly relations and today the countries continue to develop comprehensive equal trusting partnership and strategic cooperation.
Russia has been consistently developing international trade and economic relations by focusing on cooperation with friendly countries. Despite external restrictions, the domestic economy builds export capacity, and supplies goods, services, and raw materials worldwide. Atomenergomash JSC takes an active part in this work.
