Another China's fully self-developed No. 1 unit reactor pressure vessel, projected by Fuqing Nuclear Power Plant and manufactured by China First Heavy Industries (CFHI) recently passed a test successfully.

It is only one month after the first success achieved in Hongheyan Nuclear Power Plant, reassuring China's ability to produce domestically-made second generation million-kilowatt nuclear power equipments.

A reactor pressure vessel is the crucial part of the malleable casting for nuclear power, which means its production cycle must strictly meet 34 months therefore in order to ensure a permanent usage period.

Fuqing Nuclear Power Plant is a key state project, co-constructed against the background of Global recession. It represents the highest level of the domestic nuclear set.
