Westinghouse installs containment vessel top head at China’s Haiyang 1 nuclear reactor

Westinghouse announced it has successfully installed the containment vessel top head at the nuclear island of AP1000 reactor unit 1 at the Haiyang nuclear site in China.

Placement of the 659 ton containment vessel top head occurred at 9:36 am local time on March 29. The event marks a milestone in Westinghouse’s delivery of four AP1000 nuclear plants, coming on the heels of the successful top head placement at the Sanmen site in late January.
