BWXT Canada, a unit of BWX Technologies, has received contracts to provide steam generator design and manufacture components for the Fangchenggang nuclear power plant in Guangxi, China.

Located about 45km from the border with Vietnam, the power plant is being developed by Guangxi Fangchenggang Nuclear Power (GFNP), a joint venture between China General Nuclear Power and Guangxi Investment.

Under the deal with China General Nuclear Power, BWXT will supply steam generator design for units 3 and 4 of the nuclear facility.

As part of a contract with Dongfang Electric and Dongfang (Guangzhou) Heavy Machinery, the company will manufacture steam generator components for GFNP’s unit 3, and provide manufacturing support for unit 4.

BWX plans to deliver the steam generator components in 2018.

Dongfang Electric was earlier selected to supply steam generators for the units.

The Fangchenggang power station will feature six reactor units, and will have a total power generation capacity of 6,000MW.
