Rolls-Royce has been awarded a multi-million-euro contract by China National Nuclear Corporation (CNNC) to provide Bibloc pressure transmitters for two nuclear reactors under construction in China.

The British engineering giant said the pressure transmitters are for Zhangzhou-1 and Zhangzhou-2 in Fujian province, eastern China. Both plants are of the domestic HPR1000 or Hualong One reactor design. Zhangzhou-1 is scheduled to enter commercial operation in 2024 and Zhangzhou-2 in 2025.

As part of the contracts, Rolls-Royce will provide more than 200 Bibloc safety classified pressure transmitters and associated accessories such as cables, connections and electronics. Including this latest installation, these transmitters will now be in place on 36 nuclear reactors in China. 

Bibloc safety nuclear pressure transmitters, which are qualified for 60 years of operation, are designed and manufactured by Rolls-Royce teams based in Grenoble, France.

They are used for precise and reliable pressure, flow and level measurements in nuclear severe accident environments.
