Doosan Heavy Industries & Construction manufactured the reactor vessel and shipped it from the company’s in-house port in the Republic of Korea. The AP1000 will be used in Sanmen’s Unit 1 and is expected to begin commercial operations in late 2013 after testing and commissioning.
Westinghouse and consortium partner The Shaw Group (NYSE: SHAW) signed contracts to provide four AP1000 pressurized water reactors in China, two in Sanmen and two in Haiyang. The other three units are expected to come online in 2014 and 2015.
