Installation of the dome on the reactor building of unit 3 at China;s Xudabao NPP under construction in Liaoning province was completed in a single operation. Previously this had required two stages. “This unique technological operation … made it possible to optimise the process and lift the dome 188 days ahead of schedule, said Alexey Bunik, vice president for projects in China and promising projects at Russia’s Atomstroyexport. “The dome weighing 740 tonnes, fully assembled on the ground, was raised by a crane and put on the reactor building in one manoeuvre.” He added: “I am sure that the effective joint work of Russian and Chinese specialists will allow the implementation of the Xudabao NPP project exactly on schedule.”
