China Techenergy Co (CTEC), a subsidiary of China General Nuclear Power Corporation, signed a cooperation agreement and a contract with South Korea’s Doosan Heavy Industries and Construction Co’s nuclear power arm in Shenzhen, Guangdong province on Jan 29.
According to the contract signed by CGN Power President Gao Ligang and his counterpart at Doosan’s nuclear power arm, CTEC will supply a reactor rod control system to Units 3 and 4 at the Kori nuclear power plant (NPP) and Units 1 and 2 at the Hanbit NPP in South Korea.
The signing ceremony marks the beginning of the two parties' long-term cooperation. They will join hands to build the NPPs into flagship projects and then offer global markets a complete digital I&C rod control system and solutions.
The rod control system is a sub-system that regulates the reactor’s power through adjusting the position of the control rod. Its function is like the throttle and brake of a car.
