CTEC, Doosan to cooperate in I&C solutions

06 February 2018

China General Nuclear (CGN) subsidiary China Techenergy Corp (CTEC) recently signed an agreement to cooperate with South Korea's Doosan Heavy Industries and Construction to promote self-developed instrumentation and control (I&C) products. CTEC has also signed a contract with Doosan to supply SpeedyHold (CTEC’s logic controller), and then Doosan will supply replacement control rod systems to four Korean nuclear power reactors.

Doosan and CTEC signed the cooperation agreement and the contract in Shenzhen in China's Guangdong province on 29 January.

The contract calls for CTEC to supply a logic controller to Doosan, which will be a part of replacement reactor control rod systems for nuclear power plants in Korea.

CTEC and Doosan started talks in early 2016 and signed a memorandum of understanding in November of that year. The details of their cooperation were finalised last December.

In a statement, CGN said: "The signing ceremony marks the beginning of the two parties' long-term cooperation. They will join hands to build the nuclear power plants into flagship projects and then offer global markets complete digital I&C control rod systems and solutions."

CTEC's I&C products have been used in several Chinese nuclear power plants, including those at Daya Bay, Qinshan, Hongyanhe, Ningde, Yangjiang, Fangchenggang and Shidao Bay.

Doosan is a major nuclear power equipment supplier and has participated in the construction of power plants in China, South Korea, the UAE and the USA.
