HOUSTON, Nov. 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- POWER magazine today officially announced winners of its 2016 Top Plants in the nuclear generation category. This year's winners are sited in very different locations, climates, and political and economic environments around the world. They deploy diverse state-of-the-art technologies to address both unique and global challenges.
These 1974-commissioned reactors could continue generating well into the 2050s, thanks to a successful extended power uprate—conducted while the plant operated at over 92% annual capacity factor during the six-year project.
China's efforts to reduce air pollution include building more nuclear power plants. This four-unit plant was completed using only China's mostly indigenous CPR-1000 design.
Although sodium-cooled fast-breeder reactors have a checkered history, Russia remains committed to refining and developing them. This project, the largest such design in the world, introduces the first BN-800 reactor, which enables the plant to serve multiple uses.
