Construction and Commissioning Experience of Evolutionary Water Cooled Nuclear Power Plants
IAEA TECDOC Series No.  1390
This publication is intended to provide an overview of the most advanced technologies, methods and processes used in the construction and commissioning of recent water cooled nuclear power plants. Information from the following recent nuclear projects has been collected and analysed: Qinshan III Units 1&2 and Lingao Units 1&2 in China, Kashiwazaki-Kariwa Units 6&7 in Japan, Yonggwang Units 5&6 in the Republic of Korea, and Tarapur Units 5&6 in India. To facilitate the readers’ understanding, for each of the construction and commissioning activities reviewed, the publication presents background information, a brief description of the scope, generic good practices and specific examples selected from the collected data. The presentation is focused more on new developments than on providing a full review of all the issues related to construction and commissioning. The main focus of the publication is on-site construction, with only general considerations given to construction activities at manufacturers.
