Rolls-Royce, a global power systems company, has been awarded a contract by China Guangdong Nuclear Power Corporation (CGNPC) to supply its Spinline digital safety instrumentation and control technology (I&C) 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, the President of Instrumentation and Control said: "Our neutron instrumentation technology will be deployed in each of China's current and planned fleet of 22 CPR-type reactors. We are committed to working with our customers to supply products and support services that enable them to achieve the highest standards of safety, reliability and cost effectiveness."

Rolls-Royce supports a number of key phases of the global nuclear programme,

including providing advice to governments and operators, supply chain

management, and manufacturing and technical engineering support.

The group provides safety-critical instrumentation and control systems to 70% of China's civil nuclear reactors that are either in operation or under construction.
