The company, a division of Russia’s state nuclear corporation Rosatom, said the testing is one of the most important stages of the hot hydraulic functional tests, including a simulated leak in the primary system. The automatic startup of all four diesel generator sets that form part of the emergency system was also tested.

Russia is constructing and commissioning two VVER-1200 pressurised water reactors at the Belarus site and expects the first unit to be connected to the grid this year.

The tests took 24 hours to complete and were conducted at pressure of 24.5 MPa, the statement said.

Cold testing verifies that welds, joints, pipes and components in the primary circuit are able to withstand pressures higher than those during normal operation.

Russia’s Atomstroyexport (part of state nuclear corporation  Rosatom) and divisions of Chinese companies China National Nuclear Corporation (CNNC) and China Nuclear Energy Industry Corporation (CNEIC) plan to sign a contract for the construction of two units at the Xudabao NPP (Liaoning Province, Northeast China), CNNC said on 22 May. The document of the Chinese corporation, published on the website of the Shanghai Stock Exchange, said the value of the contract will be $ 1.7 billion for construction of units 3 and 4 at the NPP. The work is scheduled for completion by October 2021 and August 2022. The construction period of each unit will be 69 months but work will be suspended in the winter for four months. In June 2018, Rosatom and its Chinese partners signed a framework contract for the serial construction of the two Russian design power units with VVER-1200 reactors at Xudabao. The document also provides for the possibility of building further units in the future.
