Alstom has won three contracts to supply emergency diesel generators (EDGs)* to Chinese nuclear power plants Fangchenggang, Ningde and Hainan Changjiang, securing its position as the country’s largest supplier of emergency diesel generators.

Alstom has occupied an historic position in the development of China’s nuclear power industry ever since its involvement in the construction of Daya Bay, China’s first major nuclear power plant, twenty years ago, and more recently via its involvement in Taishan, China’s first nuclear power plant to use the third-generation EPR reactor.

In this most recent contract, worth approximately €30 million and signed on 5th February 2010 with CNPE (China Nuclear Power Engineering Corporation), the EPC –Engineering, Procurement and Construction– contracting arm of the CNNC (China National Nuclear Corporation), Alstom and Shaanxi Diesel Heavy Industry Co Ltd will supply five EDGs with a total power output of 5800 KW to the Changjiang nuclear power plant in Hainan, southern China. The units will be commissioned in late 2013. Alstom has a long-standing relationship with the CNNC and has already supplied EDGs and auxiliary equipment to Qinshan 2, Qinshan 3, Tianwan I and Tianwan 2 nuclear power plants.

Two further contracts, signed with Chinese manufacturer Shaanxi Diesel Heavy Industry Co Ltd on 8th December 2009 and worth a total of approximately €30 million, involve the supply of five EDGs to Fangchenggang nuclear power plant in the southern province of Guangxi, and four to Ningde nuclear power plant in Fujian, southeast China. The nine units have a total power output of 6300 KW and are due for commissioning in 2013.

Equipment relating to Alstom’s scope in all the three projects will be largely supplied by Alstom Wuhan Engineering and Technology Company Ltd. in China.
