South China’s first nuclear heating demonstration project officially put into operation

Beijing, Dec. 3 (Yan Xiaohong) — Haiyan in Zhejiang province is the starting point for China’s nuclear power development. Thirty years ago, the Chinese mainland’s first nuclear power plant was connected to the grid here. On December 3, the first nuclear power heating demonstration project (phase I) in south China, operated by China National Nuclear Corporation Qinshan Nuclear Power Plant, was officially put into operation in Haiyan, with a heating area of 460,000 square meters, benefiting nearly 4,000 households. By the end of the “14th Five-year Plan”, the project has been completed, which can meet the heating demand of about 4 million square meters of sea salt.

This is a demonstration of CNNC’s efforts to optimize and adjust China’s energy structure and build a clean, low-carbon, safe and efficient modern energy system.

Yu Bing, deputy director of the National Energy Administration, stressed that nuclear heating is a major livelihood project and a project for the people. CNNC should build a good benchmark project and jointly promote the benign development of nuclear heating; We should make good use of the project, carry out popular science activities of “warm nuclear”, and create a good environment for nuclear energy heating.

Liu Jing, deputy general manager of CNNC, said the promotion of nuclear heating is an important measure to promote the construction of a beautiful China. China National Nuclear Corp will adhere to green and sustainable development, ensure all-round energy security and stable supply, and play an active role in comprehensively contributing to the building of China into an energy power.

According to reports, zhejiang Haiyan nuclear energy heating demonstration project utilizes the surplus winter thermal power of qinshan Nuclear Power Base units, without affecting the original generating capacity and safety performance of units, to provide large-scale safe, zero-carbon, economic nuclear energy heating to public facilities, residential communities and industrial parks in Haiyan County. This has also played a good demonstration role in the construction of large-scale central heating projects in the south.

It is estimated that when the project is fully completed and put into operation, the annual heating capacity will reach 704,000 GIGajoules, meeting the heating demand of 4 million square meters. Compared with the way of electric heating in southern China, the annual energy consumption can be saved 196 million KWH; Compared with coal-fired thermal power units, it can reduce the standard coal consumption by about 24,600 tons per year, and correspondingly reduce the emissions of sulfur dioxide by 1817 tons, nitrogen oxide by 908 tons and carbon dioxide by 59,000 tons per year, which is of great significance to ecological environment protection and energy saving and consumption reduction.
