The main control room of the Unit 2 of the Karachi nuclear power plant, China’s self-developed third-generation HPR1000 (Hualong 1) demonstration project in Pakistan, was declared operational on April 28, according to an announcement by China National Nuclear Corporation (CNNC).

The landmark achievement was followed up by the commissioning of the digital control systems (DCS) of Karachi Unit 2.

The main control room provides a human-machine interface for certified reactor operators to monitor and control plant processes.

The operational main control room is expected to help facilitate other follow-up tests.
