Ten CNEC Projects Win National Excellent Welding Engineering Award

Date:2017-11-21

Welding is a key technology extensively used in the fields of equipment manufacturing and project construction. The welders’ skills often determine the quality of a set of equipment and success or failure of a construction project.

Over the years, China Nuclear Engineering & Construction Corporation (CNEC), China’s nuclear construction giant, has cultivated a team of professional welders with excellent skills, represented by Peng Cunli (National Model Worker and an Individual with Outstanding Contribution to National Cultivation of Skilled Talents), Wei Xiaoming (a main character in the documentary “Craftsmen of the Nation” produced by China Central Television) and Luo Kaifeng (winner of “Chinese Technical Skills Grand Prix”). The welding team has significantly contributed to the CNEC’s completion of the projects it has undertaken.

Recently, CNEC was once again honored in the field of welding. Ten of its projects won the National Excellent Welding Engineering Award, including three winners of the National Excellent Welding Engineering First Prizes and seven winners of the National Excellent Welding Engineering Outstanding Prizes, demonstrating the group’s strength and achievements in nuclear engineering, military-industrial projects and major civil engineering construction.

Winners of the National Excellent Welding Engineering First Prizes are: the welding work for the main system of nuclear island installation of unit-1 at the Fangchenggang Nuclear Power Plant phase-1, undertaken by China Nuclear Industry 23 Construction Co., Ltd. (CNI23); the welding work for the storage tank at the Diefu Station of Shenzhen Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) project of China National Offshore Oil Corporation (CNOOC), undertaken by China Nuclear Industry Fifth Construction Co., Ltd. (CNI5); and the welding work for the main steam pipeline of the AP1000 nuclear power unit-1 at Sanmen Nuclear Power Station.

Winners of the National Excellent Welding Engineering Outstanding Prizes are: steel structure welding for No. 2 nuclear island of at Changjiang Nuclear Power Project on Hainan Island, undertaken by China Nuclear Industry 22 Construction Co., Ltd.; the high-level liquid waste treatment facility at the pilot plant of the China Nuclear Industry 404 Construction Co., Ltd., undertaken by CNI23; the welding work for in-core instrumentation system at nuclear reactor plant of the Hongyanhe Nuclear Power Station phase-1 undertaken by CNI23; the stainless steel spent fuel pool of unit-3 at Yangjiang Nuclear Power Station, undertaken by China Nuclear Industry Huaxing Construction Co., Ltd.; the comprehensive hall and appurtenant works of the National Fitness & Activity Center of Qiannan Prefecture, Guizhou Province, undertaken by CNI5; the T-211 storage tank construction and installation for the LNG storage and peak regulation tank EPC project of Shenzhen City, undertaken by CNI5; and the massive structure module welding for AP1000 nuclear power unit-1 at Sanmen Nuclear Power Station, undertaken by CNI5.

The National Excellent Welding Engineering Award is the highest honor of its kind in China, including “First Prizes” and “Outstanding Prizes” which are annually awarded by China Engineering Construction Welding Association.
