A nuclear power pressure vessel with a 600 megawatt capacity passed a technical examination in Shanghai Wednesday.
The pressure vessel for nuclear reactors developed by the Shanghai Boiler Factory (SBF), China's leading manufacturer of nuclear power equipment, is crucial equipment for the second-phase power projects at Qinshan Nuclear Power Plant.
Being the country's largest boiler production base for nuclear plants, the SBF has made a number of technical breakthroughs in jointing, assembly and precision finishing while developing this equipment.
Experts say, the vessel, advanced in both quality and technology, has set a milestone in the country's manufacturing history of nuclear power equipment.
The Qinshan plant designed and constructed by China is located in Haiyan County, east China's Zhejiang Province.
