China General Nuclear installs reactor pressure vessel at Hongyanhe-6 project

The reactor is currently under construction in China's Liaoning province.

Chinese nuclear group China General Nuclear (CGN) has installed the reactor pressure vessel (RPV) at the 1,080 MWe Hongyanhe-6 ACPR-1000 nuclear reactor, which is currently under construction in China's Liaoning province.

The Hongyanhe nuclear power plant consists of a first phase including four 1,087 MWe CPR-1000 pressurized water reactors. The first two reactors were commissioned in June 2013 and May 2014, respectively, unit 3 in August 2015 and unit 4 in September 2016. CGN is developing a second phase, consisting of two 1,080 MWe (gross) China General Nuclear (CGN)-designed ACPR1000 reactors. The construction of the Hongyanhe-5 and Hongyanhe-6 started respectively in March and July 2015. They are both scheduled to start operations in late 2019 and 2021, respectively.

The Hongyanhe nuclear power plant is owned and operated by Liaoning Hongyanhe Nuclear Power, a joint venture between CGNPC and China Power Investment (45% each), while the Dalian Municipal Construction Investment holds 10%.
