Recently, the Popular Science Exhibition Hall of CGN Daya Bay Nuclear Power Base and the Popular Science Exhibition Hall of CGN Ningde Nuclear Power Base were selected into the first 100 central enterprise patriotism education bases designated by the SASAC.
Popular Science Exhibition Hall of Daya Bay Nuclear Power Base
The Popular Science Exhibition Hall of Daya Bay Nuclear Power Base is one of the earliest nuclear power popular science exhibition halls in China, with a total area of 300m2, it is an important place for Daya Bay Nuclear Power Base to receive visits from the public and professional groups. The Exhibition Hall has independent third generation nuclear power technology “HPR1000”, 1-to-1 nuclear fuel assembly and other nuclear power science popularization models, and displays nuclear power science knowledge from all angles by using acoustic, optical and electrical multimedia interactive technologies. This Exhibition Hall is normally open to the public and has received relevant party and state leaders, foreign dignitaries and people from all walks of life.
In addition to the Popular Science Exhibition Hall of Daya Bay Nuclear Power Base, Daya Bay Nuclear Power Base also has public science popularization places such as training center, skill center and material wharf, as well as a viewing platform that can accommodate 400 to 500 people at the same time. In addition, the Nuclear Science Exhibition Hall with a total construction area of tens of thousands of square meters, which is under construction, will also become an important science popularization window for China nuclear power industry.
Daya Bay Nuclear Power Base has established the first nuclear power base coral conservation area in China. More than 200 species of wild animals and plants live in the base, and there are 6 species of national key protected animals and plants are found, and 15 species of national secondary protected cave coral are found in the surrounding sea area.
As early as in 2006, Daya Bay Nuclear Power Base started industrial tourism, opening a window for the outside world to understand nuclear power. Now, relying on public interactive experience activities such as “Public Open Experience Day”, “Nuclear Power Science Popularization into the Campus” and “Industrial Tourism”, the Base has established a normalized public communication mechanism, and has carried out large-scale public science popularization activities such as “the most beautiful nuclear power wedding photo shooting”, “blue sea and sky in Daya Bay” and “submarine coral planting”.
Daya Bay Nuclear Power Base has been rated as Guangdong Environmental Education Base, Power Science Popularization Education Base, Excellent Energy Science Popularization Education Base and Guangdong Top Ten Science Popularization Education Base.
Popular Science Exhibition Hall of Ningde Nuclear Power Base
The Popular Science Exhibition Hall of Ningde Nuclear Power Base was completed in November 2013. It covers an area of more than 550m2, including the development of nuclear power in the world and China, the exhibition board of nuclear science knowledge, the equipment model of reactor building, the simulation model of nuclear power generation principle, the core fuel rod model, nuclear fuel assembly parts model, the reactor containment profile model, the panoramic sand table of Ningde nuclear power base, the VR simulation equipment of nuclear power plant area and fuel building, electronic interpretation and popular science knowledge Q&A system. Up to now, the average annual reception number of the exhibition hall has reached 16000.
The Popular Science Exhibition Hall of Ningde Nuclear Power Base is located in Ningde Nuclear Power Base. More than 200 mu of original tea gardens are well preserved in the base and handed over to local villagers to set up a garden company to be responsible for maintenance. It has become the only nuclear power base with green tea gardens in the world. Overlooking from the 88m-high platform, the nuclear power unit stands proudly under the blue sky, while on the hillside on the other side of the nuclear power unit, the tea garden is emerald, and the beauty of nature and industry are perfectly blended.
All the time, Ningde Nuclear Power Base has actively explored various projects that benefit the surrounding areas, vigorously assisted the surrounding people to solve their production and living difficulties, and organized dozens of activities such as student aid, home visits, environmental protection and popular science every year.
Since 2009, Ningde Nuclear Power Base has been open to the public. On July 3, 2017, the “Industrial Tourism” project of Ningde Nuclear Power Base was officially launched, which combined the unique beauty of nuclear power plant industry with the rich local tourism resources, not only helps to integrate the tourism resources around Ningde Nuclear Power, drive the tourism development of counties and cities around Ningde Nuclear Power, increase the income of surrounding people, but also helps to discover the mystery of nuclear power, promote more public scientific and rational understanding and publicity of nuclear power.
Ningde Nuclear Power Base has successively won the titles of National Nuclear Science Popularization Education Base and Excellent Energy Science Popularization Education Base; In 2020, it was rated as the first batch of Ningde Municipal Industrial Tourism Demonstration Bases.
