Atomstroyexport is building the Tianwan NPP in eastern China's port city of Lianyungang. The plant, which is being built under a 1992 bilateral agreement, features improved VVER-1000 reactors and K-100-6/3000 turbo-generators.
"The reactor installation of the Tianwan NPP's first power unit operates to 100% of heating capacity. The reactor installation's electric output is 1,055 MW. The output increase was carried out gradually, with all required tests being conducted successfully," Atomstroyexport said.
The company said the first power unit will be put into commercial operation after all tests have been conducted.
The first unit of the Tianwan NPP went on line in early January, but was then suspended for maintenance work.
