CNNC capable of mass producing CF3 fuel assembly
China National Nuclear Corporation (CNNC) is now capable of mass producing CF3 fuel assembly for the HPR1000, China’s third-generation nuclear power technology, according to an announcement on May 10.
The achievement further strengthened CNNC’s position in the field of nuclear fuel assemblies, and will help the HPR1000 be exported overseas.
Fuel assemblies make up the core of a nuclear reactor. They are essential to the safety, reliability, and efficiency of a nuclear power plant.
