Shanghai Electric keeps its leading position in terms of market share of domestic nuclear power equipment market.
Large forging components for nuclear power equipment
In 2009, Shanghai Electric achieved a major breakthrough in the field of large forging components for nuclear power equipment. The Company independently succeeded to build the world’s largest 16,500 MT free style oil hydraulic press, a 250 MT/630 MT meter forging manipulator and a 450 MT electro-slag re-melting furnace, which has gone on line and since earned three world-wide awards as being no. 1 in its class.
Primary pump technology
Shanghai Electric and KSB, a German company, has set up a joint venture in 2008 will supply nuclear Grade 1, Grade 2, and Grade 3 pumps and nuclear Grade 2 and Grade 3 valves for China’s 1000MW nuclear power plants. The joint venture manufacturing facility is now under construction and will reach an annual production capacity of 32 sets of nuclear Grade 2 and Grade 3 pumps in the second half of 2010.
