Izhora factories shipped the reactor vessel for the Chinese nuclear power plant "Tianwan"

On October 16, near St. Petersburg, a solemn ceremony was held for the shipment of the VVER-1000 reactor vessel for the second stage of the Tianwan NPP, which is being built in China with the participation of Russia, from Izhorskiye Zavody.

"In the near future, the product will be shipped from the cargo berth of Izhorskiye Zavody in the Ust-Slavyanka settlement in the Sea Port of St. Petersburg," the message says.

Due to its dimensions, the shipment of the reactor vessel is a unique operation: the route of a special transporter with the reactor vessel loaded on it on the way from Izhora Plants to the cargo berth crosses the Oktyabrskaya railway twice.

Because of this, on these sections of the railway (Moscow and Murmansk direction of Oktyabrskaya Railway) for a few hours the traffic of all trains will be completely stopped, and the wires of the contact network will be raised by special devices so that the oversized cargo could pass under them. After that, the product will be reloaded to the barge and delivered to the Sea Port of St. Petersburg, where the customer will go by sea to China.

Under a contract signed in 2010, Izhorskiye Zavody manufactured the first VVER-1000 reactor vessel for the second stage of the Tianwan NPP (China).

Izhorskiye Zavody carried out the manufacture and integrated supply of primary circuit equipment for the first and second units of the NPP. The commissioning of the first and second power units took place in 2007. The Tianwan NPP was built according to an improved Russian design and, according to most experts, is the safest among the operating nuclear power plants in the world.

At present, the Izhorskiye Zavody is producing primary circuit equipment for the third and fourth power units of the Tianwan NPP.

Izhorskiye Zavody OJSC is a machine-building enterprise that designs and manufactures equipment for nuclear facilities, high-energy physics research, products of heavy, chemical and petroleum engineering.

Izhorskiye Zavody is part of the OMZ Group, which is one of the leading heavy machine building companies specializing in engineering, production, sales and service of equipment for the nuclear power, petrochemical and oil and gas, mining industries, as well as in the production of special steels and the provision of industrial services. OMZ production sites are located in Russia and the Czech Republic. The group is controlled by OJSC Gazprombank.
