Power systems developer Rolls-Royce has been awarded a contract by China Guangdong Nuclear Power Corporation to supply its Spinline digital safety instrumentation and control (I&C) technology for the modernisation programme of the Ling Ao nuclear power plant.
The contract covers the modernisation of the Neutron Instrumentation Systems for reactor units 1 and 2 of the Ling Ao Power Plant. The original analogue platforms will be replaced with the latest digital safety technology that was installed in the plant's newer phase II reactor units 3 and 4.
Benoit Chabre, President, Instrumentation and Control at Rolls-Royce said: "We are a world-leader in safety I&C and our neutron instrumentation technology will be deployed in each of China's current and planned fleet of 22 CPR-type reactors."
