Rolls-Royce Wins Contract to Provide Bibloc Pressure Transmitters for New Nuclear Reactors in China

Rolls-Royce was awarded multi-million euros contract by China National Nuclear Corporation (CNNC) to provide Bibloc® pressure transmitters for two nuclear reactors currently under construction in China, Zhangzhou 1 and Zhangzhou 2, both of Hualong One reactor design (HPR1000).

As part of the contracts, Rolls-Royce will provide more than 200 Bibloc® safety classified pressure transmitters (Severe Accident, K1, K2, K3 SA) and the 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 I&C teams based in Grenoble, France.

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

Stéphane Lessi, Rolls-Royce Civil Nuclear France, Business Unit Director, said: “For more than 25 years, we have been collaborating with CNNC in China. We are delighted to have signed these new contracts, which is a strong evidence of the confidence that CNNC continues to place in our I&C technologies and in our people, for the future of their fleet”.
