Third-Generation Safety Shell for Nuclear Power PlantA third-generation Safety Shell for nuclear power plants was successfully tested at the Metallurgy and Architecture Institute on August 29, demonstrating China's cutting-edge technology in this field.
Safety Shell is on the very outer side of a nuclear reactor and the last shield to contain radiation when a nuclear leakage occurs.
The model tested is able to make construction quicker and cost-effective. Foremost, it can offer a capacity to contain leakage higher than international standard.
This containment model test is a core part of an important project in the nation's Ninth Five Year Plan. The overall goal of this project is to use China's second-generation safety shell as the foundation to design a world class one to use in commercial nuclear power plants of 0.6 million to 1 million kilowatts.
