Chinese Nuclear Power Engineering Company selects AEG to supply its Transokraft inverters for the Daya Bay and Ling Ao nuclear power stations in China

AEG Power Solutions announced that it has supplied its Transokraft single-phase inverters for the refurbishment of the Daya Bay and Ling Ao nuclear power stations in China.

Having been running for 20 years, the two plants recently needed rehabilitation. The plant’s operator, Chinese Nuclear Power Engineering Company (CNPEC), chose the AEG Power Solutions inverters to meet the highest standards of reliability and ruggedness, ensuring a secure and continuous power supply. At Daya Bay, there are eight Transokraft inverters, and at Ling Ao, there are nine, all rated at 20kVA.

Transokraft products are designed to meet the stringent requirements of the nuclear industry, including resistance to seismic events and high temperatures. The inverters have multiple certifications, including Type Test IEC 60 146-1-1 and qualification to IEC 61000-6-2 and IEC 61000-6-4 for Electro Magnetic Compatibility (EMC). For seismic testing, the products are qualified as 4G proven, even in critical range (10Hz).

“We chose Transokraft inverters from AEG Power Solutions for several reasons; firstly, because we needed a one-stop-shop including spare parts, integrated service, and diagnostic features and tools to verify all settings,” says Li Jisheng, Director of electrical modification at Daya Bay Nuclear Power Operations and Management Co. Ltd. “Then, the high robustness of the inverters was important to us, and their excellent performance in seismic tests. Finally, power supply equipment that had proven its reliability had been provided years ago by AEG Power Solutions’ affiliate, which contributed to building our trust.”

“For the nuclear power industry, Transokraft inverters provide excellent levels of reliability, as demonstrated by their rigorous testing, multiple certifications, and long proven track record,” says Rudolf Poeppelbaum, Sales Manager Power Generation at AEG Power Solutions.

Teamwork and professional technical support are crucial to CNPEC. To meet this need, AEG Power Solutions provides local support from qualified service people, who have had specific training and are certified to work on nuclear power plants.
