China National Nuclear Corporation (CNNC) attended the 17th China-ASEAN Expo (CAEXPO) in Nanning, South China's Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region, from Nov 27 to 30.

This marked the seventh consecutive year that CNNC has participated in the CAEXPO.

At the CAEXPO, CNNC indicated its strategic goals in the new era, as well as its technological innovation capabilities in nuclear power, nuclear technology applications, engineering construction, equipment manufacturing, renewable energy, and digital information.

On Nov 27, during the event, unit 5 of China's Fuqing Nuclear Power Plant, developed by CNNC, was successfully connected to the grid for the first time.

Unit 5 is the world's first pilot project to use China's indigenous third-generation nuclear power technology Hualong One, also known as HPR1000.

The unit being connected to the grid turned the Hualong One booth into the focus of the event and attracted great attention from the public.
