Izhorskiye Zavody Completes Production of Main Circulator Pumps for the Fourth Power Unit of Tianwan NPP

Izhorskiye Zavody, part of OMZ Group, has completed production and begun delivery of main circulator pumps (MCP) for the fourth power unit of Tianwan NPP (China). Two pumps have already been delivered to the customer, and two more will be shipped this autumn.

According to the contract signed in 2010 Izhorskiye Zavody produces primary coolant equipment with VVER-1000 reactor unit for third and fourth power units of the Tianwan NPP.

Izhorskiye Zavody has already completed delivery of main equipment for the third power unit, including VVER-1000 reactor vessel, a pressurizer, inspection shaft equipment, as well as shells of main circulator pumps and components of main circulation piping. Equipment for the fourth power unit is currently in production.

Izhorskiye Zavody also produced and delivered primary coolant equipment for the first and second power units of the Tianwan NPP. First and second units were put into operation in 2007. An improved Russian project was used for construction of the NPP. The majority of experts recognise the plant as one of the safest nuclear power plants in the world. High quality of produced equipment guaranteed further cooperation between Izhorskiye Zavody and its Chinese partners.
