Interview with

Eric Binard and Jean-Christian Martin, Hamon Thermal Europe DPS: Mr. Binard, could you introduce yourself to us? Eric Binard:

I joined Hamon as a cooling tower Thermal

Tester in 1985 and I moved to the sales department in 1988 where I worked mainly in Pakistan, Japan and in exporting many large projects. Later I moved to the air cooled heat exchanger (dry cooling) division. I had been holding the position of Product Manager for 7-8 years being responsible for aircoolers in the oil and gas industry as well as the market of refinery and gas compressors. Due to Hamon’s strategy of diversifying production with low labor cost, I spent two years for a JV in Bhopal (India) where we built a new workshop and installed our machines. Then, I had a proposal to go to Bombay (now Mumbai) to take care of cooling towers. That’s how I came back to this division. At that time, we bought a small company, so I made the transfer of

same in Belgium. Both companies produced the cooling towers required for the new industrial processes. Achille have always stayed on the French market, while Fernand did not confine himself to his own country but turned to neighboring country— Germany, and then very quickly to the United States. These were the first two markets abroad to be developed by Hamon. The group Hamon employs around 1900 persons around the world. In our division, Hamon Thermal Europe, there are currently 200 people working in France and Belgium. We have cooling tower equipment manufacturing plants in France, India and China, and a research & development center in Belgium.

to be able to integrate civil engineering from a thermal aspect.

DPS: What is Hamon’s presence in the international nuclear power industry? Eric Binard: In short, we participate in the cooling process in the tertiary circuits of power plants. These are cooling towers with

large chimneys having white plumes. We are somehow “making clouds.” The first nuclear power plant we have provided is Bugey, near Lyon in France. Subsequently, we supplied Spanish nuclear power plants, Germans, Belgians and Americans.

We are the prime contractor where we can be, and have been sparing no efforts in meeting the demands of our customers.

Jean-Christian Martin:

We can provide such service

if it is required by end users. We deliver the tower fully built, including the design, the erection of tower and the installation of international components. In China, we don’t speak of that because the design is always done by a design institute, and the erection will be done a civil construction company in China. In future if the market changes, Hamon can provide site service

That can be possible in China.

Interview of the Month


DPS: What other services can Hamon provide to the nuclear industry? Jean-Christian Martin:

Hamon can provide all the services related to the cooling tower business, which means we can also provide repair and maintenance. As all the towers in China will be newly built, there will be no immediate need for maintenance. But there will be such a need in some years from now and currently there can be a need in other markets like conventional power plants. In Europe for instance, Hamon has an important activity for maintenance of cooling towers. Sometimes it’s just to keep the same performance of the cooling tower, while sometime it can be to increase a 30 year-old cooling tower’s performance because it can be upgraded with improved internal equipment. That’s also something Hamon can propose.

DPS: What is Hamon’s strategy in terms of R & D? What is the annual budget allocated for R & D? Eric Binard:

R&D represents 1.5 to 2% of our turnover, but represents 15 to 20% of the production value of goods coming from our factories. We are not a company who only lives on one existing and proven technology. One can have the impression that R&D progresses very slowly in our field of activity, but in reality we have made enormous efforts to keep a competitive advantage, being always a little ahead of others. Hamon has invested a lot in the research center.

DPS: What kinds of solutions have you made through research and development? Eric Binard:

There is an example of what we have

accomplished recently. One of the Power Plants located in Moorburg, near Hamburg in Germany, Vattenfall Europe required having the “smoke” (the plume) as less visible as possible. For this purpose, Hamon has designed (and is currently building) a plume abated fan assisted cooling tower. This cooling tower is unique in its design because it serves the two 800 MWe blocks of the Moorburg power station independently from each other. This cooling tower concept received best public acceptance because it avoids visible plumes and combines limited height – lower than the plant’s main building – and ground surface.

Hamon Research & Development center

DPS: Can this type of solution be used in nuclear power? Eric Binard:

Yes, we provide a similar solution to that of EDF’s Chinon power plant, a 4X1000 MW plant close to the Loire Valley in France. Because this area is very touristic due to the Loire castles, there should be no large visible buildings. So we found a solution to create a cooling system without high and visible tower.

DPS: Are cooling towers hazardous to the environment? Eric Binard: No, it is 100% ecological. That’s the whole point

of a cooling tower. Instead of getting cold water directly from the river, taking it through the condenser and then rejecting hot water into the river, we take only 4% of the flow. We discharge water into the river without adding any elements. There are therefore no environmental hazards. For one nuclear Power Plant we have even designed and built a specific cooling tower with water collecting devices to cool the water before discharging it into the river.


DPS: Could you explain Hamon’s history in the nuclear market in China? Jean-Christian Martin: The Chinese nuclear market was

only composed of nuclear power plants located by the sea until the year 2007-2008. So there was no need for cooling towers. Then, the Chinese government changed and decided to launch an extensive program of nuclear power plants on river banks, so there is a market for cooling towers because you cannot directly discharge water into rivers. The rejected hot water temperature is too high and this would break the ecological balance. But the problem is nuclear power plants require very large cooling towers due to the large volume of water to be cooled. Chinese end users were wondering if they should build a much larger tower than what is usually built for thermal plants or if they should instead build two towers for one reactor unit. We have been in contact with Shandong Electric Power Engineering Consulting Institute (SDEPCI for short) they wanted to know which solutions Hamon could bring to this problem regarding to the dimensions of the towers. Our first contact with them led us to secure a contract to design the “Super Large” Natural Draft Cooling Tower of the Jiangxi Pengze Nuclear Power Plant. This was a means for us to promote technology developed by Hamon in France several years ago. This technology allows the towers to save a lot of pumping cost and energy. In the meantime, SNPTC was created, and part of SDPECI became SNPDRI (State Nuclear Electric Power Design & Research Institute). SNPDRI was interested in this technology and we signed an agreement with them to study the complete engineering of a tower for the AP1000 Nuclear Power Plant of Pengze. This Natural Draft Cooling Tower will be the largest cooling tower that has ever been built, 210 meters high with a base diameter of 170 meters. This was our first project in China. Our second major project was concluded with CGNPC for the Xianning Nuclear Power Plant. We had finalized a contract with them differently because we signed a cooperation agreement. We performed in collaboration with CGNPC for the complete design of the cooling towers for Xianning units 1 &2. Later we will supply and install the internal components of those towers.

Interview of the Month

Recently we have signed a cooperation agreement with CNPE (China Nuclear Power Engineering) belonging to CNNC. This agreement will open the door for an international cooperation with CNNC on super large cooling towers for nuclear projects inside but also outside of China. Hamon has a factory in China manufacturing the internal components of the wet cooling tower. This factory was established several years ago in Jiaxing, near Shanghai. So we can say that for cooling equipment, Hamon has good production base for the Chinese market. Hamon has also developed in China air-cooled steam condensers and indirect cooling. We opened a factory in Tianjin to manufacture the internal components of this kind of equipment at the end of 2010. This is a key step for the development of Hamon in China because there is a significant market for this type of equipment in areas where water is not available in a very large quantity. The wet cooling tower consumes some water, so when you have a limited quantity of water, you don’t want to lose any. The air-cooled steam condenser or the indirect cooling technologies allows cooling the water without any loss. That’s why we call it “dry”.

DPS: What were the main obstacles or technical challenges you have encountered in China? Jean-Christian Martin:

When Hamon first came to China, we had to understand the market and make ourselves known. Hamon became a member of an association named Partenariat France Chine Electricité (P.F.C.E.), in English France-China Electricity Partnership. This association aims to promote sustainable involvement of French SMEs / SMIs in the realization of China’s nuclear program. All its members are qualified providers of Electricité de France (EDF). We could benefit among other channels, of the help of this network. Then, our strategy was to try to find one competitive advantage to see what technology Hamon could propose to China which would differentiate us from others. We have promoted the water collecting device for the cooling tower. This system allows

plants will be built. But we are confident that the program will start again, because there is a need of energy supply so China will build more inland nuclear power plants. Of course there will be improvements in safety. Hamon is ready to work together with Chinese end users or design institutes to study the impact of cooling towers on the environment, because in the minds of the public, the cooling tower is seen as a pollution factor due to the smoke on top. But actually the cooling towers are producing clouds, and it is only vapor, so there is no pollution inside. There is no risk to the environment. In fact they’re beneficial to the environment. If you discharge too much water into the river, you will change the temperature of water, and it will affect the life in the river.

DPS: What are your future plans for the Chinese nuclear power market? What products will you provide for the Chinese nuclear power industry in the future? Jean-Christian Martin:

We do expect the inland

program to restart soon. We are sure there is high potential for Hamon equipping inland power plants. But we also want to continue the cooperation policy that we have started with different design institutes in China. We remain convinced to follow this kind of strategy.

us to save energy and pumping cost of the water circulation inside the cooling tower. Inside a “classic” type of Natural Draft Cooling Tower, water is pumped from the bottom of the tower to the distribution level, so the larger a cooling tower is, the higher the pumping cost is. The system using a water collecting device allows us to collect the cold water at a higher level. So the pumping head is significantly reduced because you pump only from a short distance. Therefore, the pumping cost and the energy spent to pump the water are also significantly reduced. This technology has been installed in France for more than 25 years now. It’s a good solution for saving energy. This is what we proposed to the Chinese market when we entered this market for nuclear applications. This system is not only available for nuclear power plants, but also for conventional plants if there is a need for large towers. Hamon is the only cooling tower manufacturer that offers this kind of technology and has been proven in installations which have been running for more than 25 years.

DPS: What is Hamon’s strategy in China for coping with a Fukushima type accident? Jean-Christian Martin: We haven’t stopped working on

the two nuclear power plant projects. The design activity is ongoing. The design contracts continue, but we are now suffering from the projects being delayed and we don’t know when the

Besides inland programs, Hamon has a long experience in designing and building cooling towers for coastal power plants using sea water. We notice that the Chinese are more and more concerned about the impact of the industry on the environment. The cooling system will warm the sea water, which then severely impacts sea life in the same way we said earlier about river life. So we are convinced that if the Chinese nuclear authority decides to build a cooling tower on the coast, Hamon can play an important role there thanks to our experience worldwide in wet cooling towers used near the sea. Regarding the new type of nuclear power product proposed to China, Hamon has designed and built cooling towers in Europe for emergency purposes, we called it the Ultimate Heatsink cooling tower. It was built 20 years ago when the French nuclear programs were very active in 80s. The tower is used in case of loss of coolants to cool the reactor. The reactor can be cooled using water pumped directly from the river and going through an exchange system. But, in some cases, there could be the risk of water from the river not being available in sufficient quantity. You can also imagine that the pumping section of this water can be blocked by debris. Then, you can’t secure the cooling of a reactor in case of emergency. Hence, Hamon has designed and built some specific cooling systems for emergency purposes. We have designed this type of tower for the Civaux Nuclear Power Plant in France. This tower must resist any type of external event including natural disasters like tornados, strong wind and earthquakes. This tower is intended to remain operational whatever happens to the environment of the reactor to make sure the reactor will be cooled down.


Interview of the Month

Interview with

Tonie Van Zegbroeck, CTO of Industrial Business Development at GEA Process Engineering Courtoy DPS: How long have you been with Courtoy, can you tell us more about your background? Tonie Van Zegbroeck:

In 1991 I started with Courtoy

as a project engineer for the French Melox project. Courtoy had just sold a pre-compaction press to Melox and they needed a project engineer to design a customized Mox press. Before that I was undertaking civil work in Africa, I worked three years in northern Mali, and I was responsible for a plaster plant, for a local competitor of Lafarge.

of industry. The first press was a mechanical single stroke press, which successors we made until ten or fifteen years ago. In 1933 Courtoy started making rotary tablet presses. We supplied to any industry that needed to convert powder into a solid shape. When you look at our range of tablet presses we have machines for very small components like rings with a 0.4 mm outer diameter and a 0.2mm center hole requiring a couple Newtons of compression force, up to 60mm diameter tablets requiring 400kN of compression force.

DPS: How long had Courtoy been involved in the manufacturing of Presses for the nuclear fuel industry prior to the Melox project? Tonie Van Zegbroeck:

we were repairing machines, that is how we started in this type

In 1969 the first nuclear fuel

rotary press was sold to Westinghouse in the US. This press is still in operation at Zyrcatec, Port Hope, Canada, which is now Cameco Fuel Manufacturing. It was bought from Westinghouse for one Dollar and I was told this Dollar is still on the desk of the president who made the transaction. They use the press now as a pre-compaction press. Five years ago I was in Zyrcatec and I saw that it was still operational. Here is one important point about Courtoy; our machines are so robust that they last a long time, which is a significant advantage for our customers.

DPS: How long has Courtoy been manufacturing presses? Tonie Van Zegbroeck: This year Courtoy celebrated its 100-year anniversary, but in the beginning the company was a

Coming from a holding mainly capitalized by retirement funds, and to be sold to an engineering company like GEA made a big difference. GEA was looking at the long term, and gave us the possibility to develop new machine types, strengthen our worldwide presence and allowed us to build a new production facility.

DPS: Can you tell us how Courtoy became involved with the nuclear industry? Tonie Van Zegbroeck:

The nuclear industry originally

produced the fuel pellets using hydraulic single stroke presses, but the problem with these machines is that the cylinders and hydraulic pump contain a lot of oil. When a seal blows there is oil everywhere with a high risk of contaminating the fuel. For this reason, and the need for higher production output, the nuclear fuel pellet plants were interested in exploring other technologies. The rotary press is a purely mechanical process

lubrication purposes. Westinghouse was the first to try a rotary tablet press for nuclear fuel production, not only because the problem of huge oil leaks was solved, but also the production output increased by three to five times.

DPS: After the US, the nuclear industry started its development in Europe, how were you involved?

DPS: Is there a particular reason these countries buy your equipment? Tonie Van Zegbroeck:

There are several reasons - the reliability is an important one but the most important is that we are the only rotary press company offering constant density compression. That is the unique feature. We have air compensators on both bottom and top compression

over recent years, it is only recently that we have been talking


about and experimenting with an online checking of density, so all the pellets coming from the machine will be measured in height, diameter and about twenty of them will be weight checked. From the height and the diameter you can calculate the density and the density can be fed back into the machine and then the control system can correct either the compression force or the weight of the tablet and so keeps the tablet within density and height specifications.

DPS: Do you have any feedback from your customers regarding the behavior of the fuel pellet and how you can improve your machine? Tonie Van Zegbroeck:

Yes, one of the things that everyone is looking at in the nuclear industry is to make the tablet net shape. Let me explain: When you compress uranium, or whatever powder, you always have internal powder friction. This results in a density gradient reducing towards the middle of the pellet. So even when you press at constant density internal powder friction reduces the compression force inside the pellet and as a consequence the density is less in the middle. This is observed by the hour glass shape of the pellet after sintering, as the pellet diameter is a little bit less in the middle. A centerless

DPS: Do you have a dedicated place and team in factory for the nuclear press? Tonie Van Zegbroeck:

The same project manager handles all nuclear projects and we have the same team of people who will assemble the R53/R57 presses. This guarantees a constant high ISO 9001 standard which is the same for nuclear and non-nuclear machines.

DPS: When did GEA Courtoy start working with China? Tonie Van Zegbroeck:

The first nuclear press was delivered Yibin in 1986 and the press is still in operation.

DPS: Let’s go back to China, you sold to Yibin and later expanded, tell us more about this. Tonie Van Zegbroeck:

DPS: Are you sourcing the steel materials in China? Tonie Van Zegbroeck: I remember at the beginning that

some of the stainless steel grades were shipped from Europe,

about the detergent industry, the compaction is around 20 tons, and for some projects the compression is much higher, we had a project in Australia where the compression was 35 tons, so there is a very wide range of diameters, a wide range of compression

but I believe that now the stainless steel is purchased locally.

DPS: Does it mean that you can find the same grade of raw material in China? Tonie Van Zegbroeck: As far as I understand, China has made big improvements in steel and raw material that you

can find for your local manufacturing. However I do not know if the steel is completely local or partially imported.

DPS: How many persons are working in your GPCN factory in Shanghai? GEA Shanghai

Tonie Van Zegbroeck: It is growing very fast. Ten years ago, it was a couple of hundred, but now it’s already up to 787 people and is increasing every month. We are planning to look for another facility, and this will be the third time GPCN will have moved in ten years. In addition to an increasing production there is project engineering and customer care service for a lot of the GEA portfolio.

DPS: Is your factory in Shanghai involved in the nuclear market? Tonie Van Zegbroeck:

So far not, but we do make

pharmaceutical Courtoy Modul S tablet presses for the Asian market. These presses are produced in small batches. In the nuclear field, products are more engineered to order so you need to have the engineering capabilities and the organization to build and test a single machine. For the pharmaceutical market, the machines are made on the

forces, and wide range of flow of materials.

DPS: Do you have any plan to use this factory in Shanghai to be more involved in the nuclear market for maintenance or technical support? Tonie Van Zegbroeck:

We indeed have a team in Shanghai. Jurgen Boecks, our former R&D manager at Courtoy, heads up the Courtoy business unit. Besides a sales and maintenance team, he also develops a team to assemble the Modul S press. His maintenance people can support the nuclear field and we also have a very experienced Belgian expat in the maintenance field located in Thailand and from there he can easily reach our customers in Asia for support on the larger maintenance jobs.

DPS: Areva, Rosatom and KHNP market their technology worldwide. Do they ask you to be their main partner in their international projects? Tonie Van Zegbroeck: With Areva we sold two presses to KNFC for their projects in South Korea. Areva is also involved in India. We cannot export to India although we have a purchase order. The Belgian and Indian governments are working on a bilateral nuclear agreement so we can export to India. There are other orders from Areva, because they sold their technology overseas and they consistently recommend a Courtoy press.

DPS: China is going overseas, such as to Argentina; do you plan to become a strategic partner of CNNC and the other Chinese players for the international market? Tonie Van Zegbroeck: We already provided our nuclear fuel pellet presses to Argentina and Brazil. We have proved we have the experience to design and manufacture machines for nuclear pellets and we hope we can have Chinese partners to expand to other markets. We would love to be part of CNNC projects.

Interview with

Edgar Heinrichs, Product Manager (Senior Engineer) for Nuclear Products at KABELWERK EUPEN AG DPS: Can you tell us about your background and how long have you been working for Eupen? Edgar Heinrichs:

with DBE qualification (the so-called K1 cables), or for the radiation-intensive area (so-called K2 cables) or for the periphery (the so-called K3 cables). Nowadays a lifetime expectation of 60 years has become a usual criterion.

After completing my degree in elec-

tro-technology, I started at KABELWERK EUPEN in 1979, at that time as the technical manager of the installation and accessories department (cable terminations and splices). For 10 years I have been assigned to the marketing department where I act as Product Manager and where I observe the worldwide market trends which I can take account of in EUPEN’s products range.

DPS: Eupen was created in 1747, can you tell us what kind of cables were used at that time, and how did you expand to the nuclear cables of today? Edgar Heinrichs: In 1747, the native Bourse aux family started with the production of hemp ropes, which were mainly used in the maritime sector. At the beginning of the 20th century the same owner family,

Technical Articles Adapting Low-Cost Infrared Cameras for Use in Harsh Decommissioning Environments The Dismantling of JosĂŠ Cabrera Nuclear Power Plant (Spain)


Adapting Low-Cost Infrared Cameras for Use in Harsh Decommissioning Environments By Kevin L. Young, PE / Mike Hart / Kirk J. Dooley / Jeffrey D. Jones

Technical Articles

System Modifications Modifications to the infrared camera included sealing the exterior camera housing and drilling vent holes within the housing to maintain a nitrogen purge. The focal length was adjusted on the

INTRODUCTION The cost of infrared camera technology continues to drop while image resolution and processing capabilities increase making this technology economically feasible for use in a wide range of nuclear reactor decommissioning applications. This paper describes the adaptation of relatively low-cost infrared cameras for use in harsh environments such as nuclear reactor decommissioning. Specifically, the paper describes the use of an adapted infrared camera to remotely monitor sodium treatment activities within the Experimental Breeder Reactor II (EBR II) reactor vessel.

Figure 1. Modified FLIR IR Camera

visible and infrared cameras to optimize viewing objects within the reactor vessel. A 34-foot boom and custom camera interface allowed for precise vertical positioning as well as purge gas delivery to the camera housing. Due to the potential hydrogen gas environment, the purge unit, made by Pepperl+Fuchs, would

DESCRIPTION OF THE ACTUAL WORK System Description In the spring of 2011, the engineering and technical imaging services company, Communication Designs, Inc. under contract to CH2M-WG, Idaho LLC developed an infrared camera system capable of operating inside the EBR II reactor vessel. The system was developed quickly and for less than $30,000 by modifying a relatively inexpensive FLIR M-Series (M-626L) long-wave, thermal camera and adding an inert gas pressurization system. Operating Environment The camera system had to operate safely and reliably in the harsh environment inside the EBR II reactor vessel during liquid treatment of residual sodium filled components. Elements of the harsh environment within the reactor vessel included:  Elevated radiation levels as high as 300 Rad  High humidity in excess of 95% RH  Highly caustic sodium hydroxide splashes created by the reacting sodium  Highly acidic spray from the treatment solution  Potentially explosive hydrogen gas created during the sodium reaction  Splashes of molten sodium metal

automatically kill power to the camera system if it detected a breach in the camera housing. Figure 1 shows the modified FLIR IR camera. RESULTS On 2 October 2011, the modified infrared camera system was lowered into the EBR II reactor vessel where it operated for 22 days supplying infrared and visible video images to the decommissioning team at remote stations outside the main containment dome. The camera system provided valuable, real-time information to the decommissioning team allowing visual verification of sodium treatment progress while surviving the harsh environment created by the sodium treatment process. Figure 2 shows an IR image of melted sodium flowing from the Intermediate Heat Exchanger within the primary vessel. The infrared camera was able to continue imaging key components within the reactor after the visible camera was obscured by smoke created during the sodium treatment process. Lessons Learned Lessons learned included finding that the vanadium oxide focal plane array in the infrared camera indicated no visible degradation due to the radiation field making it a suitable choice for use in radiation environments. The CMOS sensor in the visible camera was degraded over time by the radiation field. Further research is proposed to quantify and compare the effects of radiation on infrared cameras using amorphous silicon focal plane arrays (the other major type of infrared focal plane array) versus

Technical Articles 32

those using vanadium oxide focal plane arrays.

Figure 2. Infrared Image of Melted Sodium Flowing Out of the Intermediate Heat Exchanger

Figure 3. Visible Image(Left) is Obscured by Smoke while Infrared Image Continues Providing a Clear View of Reacting Sodium Components Inside Primary Vessel

Another significant finding from the work included learning that radiometric based temperature readings from the infrared cameras were consistently more accurate than readings obtained from contact thermocouples for surfaces visible to the infrared cameras. If the emissivity of the target surface is established, infrared cameras will generally provide a more accurate temperature reading compared to thermocouples.

Highlights of the Month Announcement Released by NEA on Nuclear Power Standards in the Energy Field According to the provision of “Industry Standardization Management Methods in the Energy Field (Tentative)”, the National Energy Administration (NEA) has approved “Carbon and Low Alloy Steel used by PWR Nuclear Power Plant the 14th part: Class 2 and 3 Butt Welding Seamless Pipe Fitting” and another 66 clauses of nuclear power standards. Source: President of CGMA indicated the redundant capacity in the nuclear power equipment manufacturing industry Sui Yongbin, the president of China General Machinery Industry Association (CGMA) and the chief engineer of China Machinery Industry Federation indicated at the 8th China Nuclear Energy Congress that China’s nuclear power equipment industry has redundant production capacity. Mr. Sui said that about 12 sets of the major equipment for the nuclear islands such as castings and forgings, reactor pressure vessels, steam generators, reactor internals and control-rod drive packages can be produced per year, which is more than sufficient to satisfy the national objective of completing 12 pairs of 1000MW nuclear units annually, based on our current manufacturing capacity. However, the capacity for the reactor internals and the CRDs still remains weak compared to the other components. In addition, the primary pump of the nuclear island is still manufactured by the joint venture as it remains at the stage of introducing technology and then absorbing it. Mr. Sui Yongbin added that the localization of nuclear-related

Source: Chrome-plating Surface Treatment Technology: the Guardian Angel of the Nuclear Power Products The AP1000, nuclear power’s third-generation technology, is the most advanced and safest worldwide. Compared to the 2G technology AP600, it has more advanced designs and precautions against accidents and higher requirements for security and civil engineering. Nantong Shenhai Science and Industrial Technology Co., Ltd (referred to as Shenhai) process the AP1000 nuclear power products and provides the surface treatment technology for the CRDM, reactor internals and the explosion valves. The fastener surface treatment technology for the reactor internals is one of the key technologies to be developed among the APWR national major specific programs. It involves electroplated hard chrome and the phosphorization. The chromeplating surface treatment technology for the AP1000 reactor internals is a major core technology and also the cutting-edge surface treatment technology at present. This technology is acclaimed as the “Guardian Angel” of the nuclear power products as it is an essential and necessary technology to guarantee the NPP operation. Shenhai invested a lot in R&D and has now established the specific workshop adaptable to nuclear power products and continuous plating production lines. Finally, it has made a significant breakthrough in this technology: the chrome plating has reached the requirements of the international AP1000 standards; the hardness, abradability and bending resistance of the chromium coating has been guaranteed. Shenhai’s products have been acknowledged by CNNC and CGNPC for the chromeplating surface treatment technology which has satisfied the requirements of the 3G AP1000 standard and changed the situation of the traditional surface treatment techniques, thus it fills the blank of the domestic electroplated

(SNPTC) had an informal discussion via video with the first group of personnel sent to the USA by the State Nuclear Power Engineering Co. (SNPEC) in order to support the VOGTLE nuclear power project construction. In accordance with the agreement signed between the SNPTC and the Shawn Group in the USA, the SNPEC will dispatch 6 members, its first group to be sent there. They are all experienced in AP1000 nuclear power project construction. Mr. Wang Binghua pointed out that this is the first time engineering technology has been supplied to a developed country. It lays a path for nuclear power cooperation at home and abroad and enjoys a great significance. The purposes for SNPEC involving itself in the American VOGTLE nuclear power project are: firstly to learn from the American partners about the AP1000’s construction; secondly to apply the good practice developed during Chinese plants’ construction into AP1000 projects in the US, thus to realize the mutual understanding and mutual learning which would benefit the strategic cooperation between the SNPTC and the Shawn Group.

Small-scale nuclear power projects refers to plants with single capacity less than 300,000 KW and with the characteristics including small volume, high safety, few limitations in geography, low construction cost and wide application. Mr. Zhang Shuofu gave the guests a warm welcome on behalf of the municipal committee and government. He indicated that Yongzhou as a city with long history and a good eco-environment would have broader prospects in the future; however, its energy will inevitably become one of its most important limiting factors while continuously building the nationally industrial transfer demonstration areas. Yongzhou needs the energy support especially nuclear power, so Mr. Zhang expects both sides to make preparations and lay a solid foundation for the promotion of the nuclear project in the future. Mr. Yu Jianfeng briefly talked about the prospects of the smallscale nuclear power project, government policies and technical requirements. He stated that CPI will closely work with the relevant units in Yongzhou and make some preliminary preparations in advance such as site selection so that the project can settle down in Yongzhou as soon as possible.

有的人可能认为我们的研发进程缓慢,但我们一直不懈努力以保持竞争力 并略领先于其他企业。哈蒙在研究领域投资很大。



DPS:哈蒙通过研发都获得了哪些解决方案? Eric Binard 先生:有一个例子可以说明我们取得的成就。德国汉 堡附近的玛堡核电站,Vattenfall Europe 公司要求排放的“烟”尽量不 可视。为达到此目的,哈蒙设计了(现在正在建造)一种通风消雾冷却塔。 这种冷却塔的设计独一无二,因为它为玛堡电站两个独立的 800 兆瓦电力 厂区服务。这种概念的冷却塔有良好的���会反响,不但看不到排放的烟, 也满足电站对高度的限制(塔高低于电站主建筑)和地面情况。

DPS:这种解决方法是否适用于核电? Eric Binard 先生:是的,我们给法国电力公司希农核电站(卢瓦 尔河谷附近的一个 4X1000MW 电站)提供了一个相似的解决方案。因为附 近的卢瓦尔城堡是著名的旅游景点,所以不能有高大的可视建筑。因此, 我们就提供了一种看不见高大的塔身的冷却系统。

DPS:冷却塔是否对环境有害? Eric Binard 先生:没有,它是百分之百环保的。这是建造冷却塔 的重中之重。从河流汲取的冷水流入冷凝器然后阻止热水排放到河流里, 我们的冷却塔只需利用这个过程中 4% 的水即可。我们排放到河里的水没 有增加任何有害元素,因此对环境无害。我们曾经给一个核电站设计建造 了一种专门的冷却塔,在把水排放到河里之前收集水装置会把水先冷却。

运而生。如果排放的热水温度太高,就可能破坏生态平衡,但问题是需要 被冷却的水量越大,核电站需要的冷却塔就越大,所以中国的用户考虑能 否建一个比常规火电厂使用的更大的冷却塔呢?或者能否为一个反应堆建 造两个冷却塔呢? 我们与山东电力工程咨询院(简称 SDEPCI)取得了联系,他们想知 道针对冷却塔的大小问题,哈蒙有什么样的解决方案。与 SDEPCI 的第一次 沟通帮助我们获得了设计江西彭泽核电站“超大”自然通风冷却塔的合同。 这种技术是我们几年前在法国推广的一种。这种科技可以使冷却塔节省很

兴建立了一个专门生产湿式冷却塔内部构件的工厂,可以说,哈蒙的生产 基地可以很好的适应中国市场对冷却设备的需求。 哈蒙在中国也发展空冷蒸汽冷凝器和间接冷却业务,2010 年底,我 们在天津成立了一个工厂生产这种设备的内部构件,这是哈蒙在中国发展 的重要一步因为缺水地区对这种设备将有巨大需求。湿式冷却塔需要消耗 水,所以当水量不足时,你一点也不想浪费。空冷蒸汽发生器或者间接冷 却技术能够使水冷却的过程中不浪费水。这是为什么我们称它为“干式” 的原因。

多抽运成本和能量。当时国家核电技术公司正好成立,SDEPCI 的部分部门 也并入国家电力规划设计研究院(SNPDRI),SNPDRI 对这种技术很感兴趣, 我们与他们签署了协议,研究江西彭泽的 AP1000 核电站冷却塔的成套工程, 这个自然通风冷却塔将成为迄今最大的一个,它高 210 米,底部直径 170 米。 这是我们在中国的第一个工程。 我们的第二个重大项目是中国广东核电集团(中广核)承担的咸宁核 电项目。我们与他们签署了一份有别于其他合同的合作协议书。我们与中 广核合作拟出一套完整的咸宁核电 1&2 机组冷却塔设计方案。之后我们将

DPS:哈蒙在中国遇到的主要阻碍或技术挑战是 什么? Jean-Christian Martin 先生 :


先必须做的是了解这个市场并打响我们的名声。因此我们加入了法中电力协 会,这个协会旨在推动法国的中小企业不断参与到中国的核电项目中来,它 的所有成员都是法国电力集团的合格供应商。这个渠道使我们受益颇多。



  我们的策略就是要努力发掘出一个独特的技术优势来服务中国市场。我 们开发了一种冷却塔集水装置,这种系统非常节能,能够降低冷却塔内水循 环的集水成本。在传统的自然通风冷却塔里,从塔底抽水到指定水位,所以 冷却塔越大,抽水成本就越大。而使用集水装置的这个系统可以在较高的位 置收集冷水,因为抽水的距离短,抽水扬程就大幅度减少了,因此,抽水成 本和所耗能量也大幅减少了。这种技术在法国应用已经有 25 年了,是节能 的好办法。这是我们进入中国核应用市场时向中国推广的技术,它不仅适用 于核电站,也适用于需要用到较大冷却塔的常规电站。哈蒙是唯一一个提供 这种技术的冷却塔厂商,而且它的安装技术也得到了证明—25 多年前的冷却 塔至今仍在运行。

DPS:福岛核事故后哈蒙在中国有什么样的应对 策略? Jean-Christian Martin 先生 :


设计仍在持续,设计合同没有解除,但是延误了,不知道什么时候核电站还 会再建。不过我们坚信项目还会重启,因为中国能源供应需求大,中国一定 会在内地建造更多的核电站。当然核电安全也是会不断改善的。哈蒙非常愿 意与中国客户或设计院合作共同探讨冷却塔对环境的影响,因为在公众的意 识里,冷却塔被视为释放“废烟”的污染源,但事实上冷却塔排放出来的只 不过是水蒸气,没有任何污染。它非但不会给环境构成威胁,反而实际上有 益于环境。如果排放太多热水到河流湖泊里,水温的变化会危害里面的生物。

DPS:针对中国的核电市场,哈蒙将来的计划 是什么?哈蒙会给中国核电市场提供什么样的产 品。


Jean-Christian Martin 先生 :

自然通风冷却塔—法国 Cruas 核电站













核发展当局决定在海边建一座冷水塔,我相信哈蒙会起到关键作用,因为我 们有在近海海域建造蒸发冷却塔的经验。关于新型的核电产品,那就是我们 在欧洲设计建造的备用冷却塔,称之为“终极散热冷却塔”,建于 20 年前 法国核电项目非常活跃的时期。建这个冷却塔是为了防止反应堆失水事故的






基伊埃工程技术 Courtoy 公司 工业业务拓展部技术总监

Tonie Van Zegbroeck 先生 专访 DPS: 您加入 Courtoy 有多久了?可否介绍一 下您的个人背景?

左右,中心孔直径 0.2 毫米的环;我们还有压片机可以用 400KN 的压力压制 出直径为 60 毫米的片。

Tonie Van Zegbroeck 先生:1991 年,我加入了 Courtoy 公司, 担任梅洛克斯项目的项目工程师。Courtoy 刚刚卖给梅洛克斯工厂一个预压式 压片机,他们需要一位项目工程师设计一台专门处理 MOX 的压片机。在加入 Courtoy 公司之前,我在马里共和国北部(西非国家)工作了三年,负责当地 一个石膏厂,该厂与法国拉法基集团是竞争关系。

DPS: Courtoy 是家族式企业还是隶属于一个 集团? Tonie Van Zegbroeck 先生:

1998 年 Courtoy 的最后的家族

成员离开了我们,而该公司也于 1990 年卖给一家英国控股公司 GEI,而由于 经营不善,GEI 又将其产业出售给 GEA(基伊埃)。主要靠资产换置基金勉强

DPS: 在承接梅洛克斯项目之前,Courtoy 制 造核燃料压片机有多久的历史? Tonie Van Zegbroeck 先生:1969 年我们的第一台核燃料旋转

维持的企业被卖给了像 GEA 这样的大型工程公司,这对企业来说意义重大。 基伊埃更注重长远发展,所以它帮助我们研发新型设备,提升我们在全球的 影响力,并帮我们建造了一个新的生产设施。

式压片机出售给了美国的西屋电气公司。位于加拿大霍普港的 Zyrcatec 公司 (已更名为 Cameco 公司)现在还在使用该设备。据说,Cameco 公司用 1 美 元从西屋电气公司那里购买了该设备,负责这次购买项目的总裁办公桌上仍 然摆放着这 1 美元。Cameco 公司将该设备用作预压式压片机。五年前我曾去

周年。公司成立初期,我们是作为负责小型机械修理的次承包商。我们所接 触的客户中,很多来自医药化学行业,而我们又负责他们的机器维修,慢慢 的我们就进驻了这个行业。我们生产的第一台压片机是机械化单冲压片机, 直到十几年前我们还在生产这种压片机的升级版本。   1933 年 Courtoy 开始制造旋转式压片机。我们的服务领域覆盖所有需要

DPS: 继美国之后,欧洲也开始发展核电,您是 如何接触到核电市场的? Tonie Van Zegbroeck 先生:我先是在梅洛克斯的压片机厂担 任项目经理,然后到了 Courtoy 公司担任工程部经理,从此开始涉足 Courtoy

将粉末转化为固体形状的行业。我们生产的压片机系列种类众多,我们有压 制小部件的压片机,例如有的压片机要用几牛顿的压力压制出外径 0.4 毫米




DPS: Courtoy 公司在欧洲核燃料领域中居于 什么样的地位?

不同,芯块的高度会有所不同,而由于压力恒定不变,每个固体压片的密度 都是相同的。

Tonie Van Zegbroeck 先生: 据我们所知,Courtoy 占领了世 界上至少 95% 的旋转式压片机市场。欧洲地区以前使用其它工厂生产的压片 机,但是我认为现在也全都被 Courtoy 生产的压片机代替了。

DPS: 贵公司有没有参与第 4 代核电站的核燃料 制造? Tonie Van Zegbroeck 先生:是的,我们有参与。如法国凤凰

DPS: 那么 Courtoy 公司在欧洲以外的其它国 家占据什么样的地位?


Tonie Van Zegbroeck 先生:从世界核能协会发布的核燃料芯


块厂清单可以看出,除了伊朗、北朝鲜、巴基斯坦(不允许向这三个国家出 口相关核设备)和印度(有望很快获得出口许可)没有使用我们的压片机, 其它国家都在使用我们的设备。1994 年我们开始向俄罗斯出口 U02 压片机, 直到现在它还在用我们的设备,此外,哈萨克斯坦、中国、阿根廷、巴西、

DPS: 第 4 代核电站采用的旋转式压片机与第 2 代、第 3 代核电站有什么不同之处吗? Tonie Van Zegbroeck 先生:我认为首先是防护等级有所不同。 据我所知,对于第 4 代核电站用而言,用于芯块转化的粉末危险度更高,所

南韩、美国和加拿大的核燃料厂也在用我们的压片机。 以不需要操作者就能运行的高防护等级的压片机是至关重要的,并且这种设

DPS: 贵公司生产的压片机有何独特之处?为什 么这么多的国家都会选择贵公司的设备呢? Tonie Van Zegbroeck 先生:原因有几点。可靠性是一个重要


DPS: 贵公司的新产品体现了哪些新的研发理 念?


Tonie Van Zegbroeck 先生:就拿普通的铀压片机来说,技术


更新的地方不是很多。要知道核能领域的保守性较高。2007 年,我负责向国


际推广我们公司的压片机时,我与核能领域的客户沟通过相关问题,请求他 们将使用我们产品的感受反馈给我们,并且希望他们提出改良要求。事实上,

比利时伊基埃 Courtoy 公司







几乎没有太大的改变。不过,最近我们正在探讨密度在线检测方案,并开展 了实验。我们从压片机生产的芯块高度、直径入手进行监测,并抽取 20 个芯 块对其重量进行检测。从芯块的高度和直径可以计算出密度,然后这个信息 将会反馈给压片机,压片机的控制系统将会调整压力或者固体压片的重量,

DPS: Courtoy 公司的旋转式压片机运行年 限长,这就意味着新的订单需求少,那么您是 如何维持业绩的? Tonie Van Zegbroeck 先生:我现在遇到的最大挑战就是在



DPS: 您的客户有没有对于生产核燃料芯块的压 片机提出反馈意见?贵公司将从哪些方面改进这 种设备?


Tonie Van Zegbroeck 先生:核能行业非常关注如何实现压片


我们原来使用湿法制粒,现在多用干法制粒,我们在干法制粒的设备上装 有滞留 / 夹持系统以保证在���备喷发颗粒时颗粒不会产生裂痕。由于干法


净成形。这一点我可以解释一下 : 当我们压缩铀或者是任意粉末时,粉末会 产生内部摩擦,这就造成了芯块密度从外围向中间依次降低。因此,即使外 部压力恒定不变,芯块中部的密度也会因为粉末内部的摩擦而变小。经过烧 结以后,由于芯块中部的密度较低,整体形状会像计时沙漏。为了保证用于 反应堆的核燃料芯块散热均匀,必须严格控制芯块和包衣之间的公差,因此

DPS: 在工厂内部有没有专门负责核能压片机 的团队和办公场地?


Tonie Van Zegbroeck 先生:所有的核能项目由同一个项目


经理负责。负责装配 R53/R57 压片机的员工也是来自同样的团队。这样我 们就能保证所有设备都能达到 ISO 9001 制定的高标准,该项标准适用于所 有核能设备和非核能设备。

DPS: 基伊埃 Courtoy 公司是什么时候进驻 中国市场的? Tonie Van Zegbroeck 先生:1986 年中国四川省宜宾市购买 了我们的一台核燃料压片机设备,现在这台设备仍在运行。

DPS: 让我们多了解一下 Courtoy 在中国的 发展状况。贵公司将设备出售给中国四川省宜 宾市,随后中国市场慢慢得以拓展,可否谈一 下贵公司在中国的发展历程? Tonie Van Zegbroeck 先生:宜宾市确实购买了我们公司的 设备,据我所知上次设备购买是在 2007 年年底。中国市场对我们来说很重 要,中国现在有很多在建的核电站项目,而核燃料需求成为必然。核能在 欧洲没有得到拓展,因此,我们需要转向其它国家寻求市场。我们了解到 中国现在正在研发新型反应堆,我们期望能够参与到这类项目。这样,我 们就可以帮助这些新型特定的反应堆优化核燃料芯块制造过程。

DPS: Courtoy 公司在上海建立了工厂,针 对中国市场而言,该厂的目标是什么 ? Tonie Van Zegbroeck 先生:不仅仅是核能市场,中国其它 行业的市场均发展迅速,这就意味着劳动密集型产品可以在中国制造销往 世界各地,如中型散装容器(IBC)。中国市场有需求,就有产品随之而来,






DPS: 现在贵公司开始在中国采购原料了吗? Tonie Van Zegbroeck 先生:我记得刚开始所需的不锈钢原料 是从欧洲运过来的,但是我认为现在这种原料可以在中国本地购买。

的。在核能产业,所有的产品都是按订单生产的,所以一个公司不仅需要有 生产制造能力,还要具备制造一个设备并且进行测试的能力。 在制药领域,所有的机器都是按照订单组装的,因为与其它行业相比, 制药行业的设备种类很少。举例来说,95% 的用于制药的粉末容器都是相

DPS: 也就是说您可以在中国找到相同的原料? Tonie Van Zegbroeck 先生:据我所知,中国的钢材质量及其 它原料质量大有提升,这些原料可以用于本土化生产。然而,我不知道这些 钢材是否完全是本土化制造亦或是有部分原料来自进口。

似的,所以片剂制造的流程区别不大。片剂的尺寸要小一点以便于吞咽, 所以总的来说这种设备的制造流程是非常标准化的。     而非制药设备的制造流程就复杂多了。举个例子来说,圆珠笔的钨珠需 要几公斤的压力。但是制造洗涤产品的压力就又不同了,大概为 20 吨。还有 一些项目所需的压力更高。我们有一个澳大利亚的项目所需的压力为 35 吨。 所以非制药设备制造产品的直径有小有大,所需压力千差万别,产品流程特

DPS: 位于上海的基伊埃工程技术(中国)有限 公司(GPCN 公司)现有多少员工? Tonie Van Zegbroeck 先生:员工数量在快速上升。十年前, 只有几百人,现在已达到 787 人,而且每月都有新员工进驻。现在我们计划 再找一处场地,这是 GPCN 公司十年内的第三次搬家,除了产品产量的增加, 项目工程和客户服务也是 GEA 追求的。


DPS: 有没有计划让上海公司更多的涉足核能市 场,如做核能维修或技术支持? Tonie Van Zegbroeck 先生:


Jurgen Boecks, 曾经在 Courtoy 担任过研发经理,现在负责我们公司的业务 部门。他除了带领销售和维修小组,还带领一支专门负责 Courtoy S 模块压

DPS: 基伊埃上海公司有没有进驻核能市场呢? Tonie Van Zegbroeck 先生:现在来说还没有。但是我们确实 有为亚洲市场制造 Courtoy S 模块制药压片机。这些压片机也是小批量生产

片机组装的团队。他手下的维修小组可以对核能领域的设备起到技术支持的 作用。同时我们还有一大批经验丰富的比利时专家,现在在 Courtoy 驻泰国 办事处办公,他们可以更好的为亚洲客户提供技术支持,或负责大规模的设 备维护工作。


DPS: 贵公司是否为 AP1000 生产过芯块? Tonie Van Zegbroeck 先生:目前所有 AP1000 使用的芯块均 是 Courtoy 压片机制造的。互联网上有关于 AP1000 使用芯块的研究报道。 而美国西屋电气公司希望能够增加反应堆的输出量。其中一则研究报告表示, 西屋公司希望在芯块中间添加一个孔,这样不仅在芯块外层有一个包衣,在 孔洞中间也有一层包衣,就可以达到两边同时冷却。这样可以让反应堆的输


所在。我们定期拜访客户,倾听他们的意见和建议,并给出合理的解决方案。 这一点对与我们来说非常重要。

DPS: 法国阿珐海、俄罗斯国有原子能公司、韩 国水力原子力公司在全球推广他们的技术。这些 企业有没有邀请贵公司成为他们的主要合作伙伴 来共同参与国际项目呢?

出量可以增加 30%。所以现在有些反应堆使用的核燃料芯块中间都有一个孔, 以保证芯块中间是冷却的。不过我们将会采用多种可行性方案来增大芯块的

Tonie Van Zegbroeck 先生:在阿珐海的帮助下,我们出售给


韩国核燃料公社两台压片机。阿珐海在印度也有项目。然而,尽管我们有来 自印度的订单,却无法向这个国家出口我们的设备。现在比利时和印度政府

DPS: 贵公司是否有参与其它反应堆项目,如 EPR 或是第三代核电站?

正在就签订双边核能协议进行协商,该协议一旦签订,我们就有资格向印度 出口设备了。当然阿珐海还有来自其它国家的订单,他们也经常向合作公司 推荐我们的压片机设备。

Tonie Van Zegbroeck 先生:基伊埃工程设备 Courtoy 压片机 公司参与了其它反应堆项目,但是由于我们与这些公司签订了保密协议,不 方便透漏这些公司的名称。我们是一家工程设备公司,与该领域中在全球占 有领先地位的企业有密切的合作关系,如美国西屋电器公司、阿珐海、法国 原子能机构、韩国核燃料公社及中国核工业集团等。我们帮助这些企业优化 他们的产品。此外,我们与俄罗斯的企业也有合作。

DPS: 中国现在准备向其它国家 ( 如阿根廷 ) 的 核能市场进军 , 贵公司有没有计划与中国核工业 集团或其它中国企业建立战略合作伙伴关系,来 共同拓展国际核能市场? Tonie Van Zegbroeck 先生:阿根廷和巴西已经购买了我们的

DPS: 可以说贵公司的技术改良离不开客户的反 馈信息,对吧。


Tonie Van Zegbroeck 先生:我觉得这是我们改良技术的关键


的能,并且已经积累了丰富的经验。与此同时,我们希望能够与中国企业建 立合作共同拓展其它核能市场。当然,我们非常期望参与中国核工业集团的



KABELWERK EUPEN AG 公司 核电产品生产部经理(高级工程师)

Edgar Heinrichs


DPS: 您可以介绍一下您的背景吗?您已经在 Eupen 工作多久了?

DPS: Eupen 只在比利时设立了公司吗?

Edgar Heinrichs 先生:在获得电工学学位之后,我于 1979 年

在同样的地方,也就是在比利时的德语区 Eupen 市。我们的公司名字

Edgar Heinrichs 先 生: 整 个 管 理, 行 政 和 生 产 流 程 都 是

加入了 KABELWERK Eupen,那时我是安装和配件部门(电缆终端和接头)

KABELWERK EUPEN 也 源 于 这 个 地 理 名 字, 大 部 分 的 客 户 都 称 我 们 公 司



我作为市场部生产经理已有 10 年了,在此期间,我时刻关注世界市

  其他的销售处和物流中心遍布全球。几乎所有外面的附属公司名字中 都会提到“EUPEN”。

场动态,争取使 Eupen 的产品系列与世界市场接轨。 高级工程师的身份使我对外可以保持与客户的广泛联系,对内可以 和不同的部门加强沟通,例如研发部,生产部,测试实验室和质量控制部 门等。我现在的主要活动集中在核电领域的电缆产品上。

Edgar Heinrichs 先生:目前 Eupen 总部公司有员工 930 名。

DPS: Eupen 只专注于核电领域电缆的业务拓 展吗?是否还提供其他领域的电缆? Edgar Heinrichs 先生:KABELWERK

EUPEN 素以电力电缆全套 供应商闻名。从简单的电线到中低压电缆和仪控电缆,再到通 信电缆, 对称铜芯电缆,同轴电缆或者光纤技术,凡是可能应用于工业领域的电缆 都属于我们的产品范围。Eupen 数十年的产品生产经验使得我们的部分产 品在二十世纪八十年代就达到了核电要求标准,包括隔离区用拥有 DBE 资 质的电缆(即所谓的 K1 电缆),辐射密集区用电缆(所谓的 K2 电缆)和 外围区用电缆(所谓的 K3 电缆)。如今,这些电缆预期 60 年的使用寿命 已经不足为奇。

DPS: Eupen 创立于 1747 年,那时使用的是 什么电缆?你们是如何扩展到现在的核用电缆领 域的? Edgar Heinrichs 先生:1747 年,当地的 Bourse

DPS: 贵公司的规模有多大?

aux 家族开


  20 世纪初同样是 Bourse aux 家族,不过这时它已经在绞合技术方面

对于 Eupen 这样一个私有公司来说,这个数字还是相当大的。公司占地面 积 33.5 万多平方米,其中建筑和生产线占地面积约 14.5 万平方米。

DPS: 贵公司工厂设计和生产多少种类型的电 缆? Edgar Heinrichs 先生: 由于产品范围广泛,我们很难说在

Eupen 一百多年的历史中到底有多少种类型的电缆,只能说目前我们的系 统中拥有约 32,882 种不同的电缆。

DPS: 有些公司生产核用电缆,尤其是 K1 电缆。 Eupen 是否也参与电缆的设计呢? Edgar Heinrichs 先生:正如其他类型的电缆一样,我们也在 Eupen 市的设备处研发,生产和测试核用电缆。绝缘和护套材料也是在我 们内部实验室研发的,同样地,电缆构造也是由我们自己的设计部设计的。 从拔丝到外部护套,所有的生产都是内部运作的。而且,所有的测试都是 严格按照 ISO 9000 的规定执行的。   基本上,我们遵循所有相关的电缆标准,如 IEC 或 EN,还有核电标


准 IEEE383/323 或 RCC-E,和基于 IEC 或 EN 的消防标准。



20 世纪 80 年代初这些产品已经符合了比利时第一批核电站 - Doel 和


Tihange 核电站的严格的标准要求。




DPS: 自从日本福岛事故后,核电相关部件的设 计和制造都对安全性有了诸多要求。EUPEN 是 否受到了新安全要求的影响? Edgar Heinrichs 先生:EUPEN 并未受到直接影响,核用电缆 的测试和安全标准向来很高且严苛,因为它关乎核电环境下电缆的使用寿 命,火灾事故中电缆的状况和核事故中电缆的性能。

DPS: 针对火灾,洪水和失水事故等,是否有特 别的新的规范要求呢? Edgar Heinrichs 先生:一般来说,IEEE

383/323 标准和法国 的 RCC-E 标准负责防范以上工况。此外,有的规范还要符合不同反应堆型 的特定要求。这些要求包括辐射剂量,温度和压力分布图以及其它的性能 要求。   EUPEN 一直希望按照世界现有项目和反应堆的参数测试自己的产品。

DPS: 一座核电站大概需要多少电缆?需要何种 电缆? Kabelwerk Eupen 实验室 -- 电缆成束燃烧测试

DPS: 贵公司的用户大多集中在欧洲还是其他地 方? Edgar Heinrichs 先生:只要我们符合相关标准,我们的产品 就有可能出现在世界上任何一个地方。我们的产品完全是按照国际通用标 准,还有 IEC 和 EN 标准以及大部分欧洲国家共同标准而生产的。   就中国市场而言,在 2003 年我们为田湾 1&2 号项目向上海核工院和 江苏核电公司供货。

Edgar Heinrichs 先生:很难准确说一座电站需求多少电缆, 我们生产大量不同类型的电缆,它们的应用不尽相同,并广泛用于不同电 厂的设备处。   整套电缆并不是来自一家供应商,但是核电站的建筑趋于精小化,所 以实际电缆也需要缩小。每台机组约需要 120-150km K1 电缆。

DPS: 请您谈谈 K2 和 K3 电缆的不同之处? Edgar Heinrichs 先生:这很简单:根据他们使用地方的不同, K2 电缆必须要有辐射抗性,而 K3 电缆原则上要安装在无辐射的环境中。 但是这两种类型的电缆都需要严格的生产监管和后续跟踪。

DPS: Eupen 的核用电缆是无卤电缆,你们和 美国的电缆主要不同之处是什么? Edgar Heinrichs 先生:多年来,公共建筑用无卤安全电缆一

直是 EUPEN 的一个重要市场。我们也以此获利颇多,所以也决定把这种电 缆应用到核用电缆产品中。   众所周知,核电市场有无卤解决方案(主要用于欧洲国家)和非无卤

DPS: 中国有些公司能够生产 K1 电缆,但是工 程总承包商宁愿从包括 Eupen 在内的外商那里 进口 K1 电缆。您对此有什么看法? Edgar Heinrichs 先生:长期的经验和优秀的业绩是关键因素。


方案(践行于美国和俄罗斯地区)。   EUPEN 专门向核电市场提供无卤电缆产品,致力于为核电站的基本安 全作出贡献。

DPS: 您可以谈谈和西屋的合作吗?你们是否参 与了 AP1000 项目? Edgar Heinrichs 先生: 在 Ringhals 项目框架下,西屋瑞典 公司是一个很好的忠实客户。我们面临着新型 AP1000 规格要求的挑战, 但我们有能力使我们的电缆满足这种新反应堆的条件要求。   另外,每个反应堆建设都会对项目相关的国家规格要求有预见性。

个家族企业。我们公司的结构使我们只能把有限的员工和资金投入到像中 国这样的巨大且富有挑战的市场上。

DPS: EUPEN 是为数不多拥有 HAF604 认证 的的外国公司之一。你们是从什么时候开始在中 国开展业务的?

  语言和表达方式的差异可能是一个障碍。尽管可以通过英语达成简单 共识,误解和翻译的不同也是不可避免的,技术性高的翻译服务器又很少。

Edgar Heinrichs 先生:2010 年我们获得了 HAF604 认证,证书

编号是 N0-1008,该证书的有效期到 2015 年。没有该证书,任何核电相关 产品出口到中国都是不可能的。

DPS: K3 电缆的竞争是在国内,K1 的竞争是国 际上的竞争,你们是怎样发挥自身的竞争优势的? Edgar Heinrichs 先生: 我们尊重中国的“K3”市场,因此我 们把主要精力放在“K1”电缆上,只要投标方允许 K1 和 K2/K3 分开投标。

1. 核用对绞式、仪表屏蔽标准电缆

我们充分利用我们在“K1”产品方面长期的经验,但是我们也知道中国的 “K1”电缆市场是许多国际竞争对手角逐的目标。   另一个重要因素是永远以一种走近中国客户的姿态获得并保持他们的 信心。

DPS: 中国将建造更多的 AP1000 项目和其他 的三代核电站。这个策略是否影响了 EUPEN 的 技术要求?

2. 核用对绞式、仪表屏蔽标准电缆(子线结构图)

Edgar Heinrichs 先生:我们需要更多地了解三代核电的规范 要求,然后才知道我们以前提供的解决方案是否仍然适用。   关于安全,鉴于日本福岛核电事故,我们想安全要求会更高。

科技文章 在严峻的电站退役环境下采用低成本红外摄像机 José Cabrera 核电站的拆除史(西班牙)




在严峻的电站 退役环境下采 用低成本红外 摄像机

作者:Kevin L. Young, PE / Mike Hart / Kirk J. Dooley / Jeffrey D. Jones

图一:改进后的 FLIR IR 摄像机

结果 2011 年 10 月 2 日,改进后的红外摄像系统被放入 EBR II 反应堆


容器内,它运行 22 天,为主穹顶外的远程站退役小组人员提供红外可 视图像。红外系统为电站退役工作小组提供了宝贵的实时信息,从而可

红外摄像技术的成本持续下降,而图像分辨率和处理能力却不断 提高,从而使这项技术经济实用并被广泛用于核反应堆退役项目。本 文描述了相对廉价的红外摄像仪在严峻的核电站退役环境中的应用, 特别讲述了红外摄像仪在远程监控实验性增殖反应堆 II(EBRII)反应 堆容器内钠处理方面的应用。

 实际工作的描述   系统描述 2011 年春,工程技术图像服务公司 -- Communication Designs 按照与 CH2M-WG Idaho 有限责任公司(简称 CWI 公司)签订的合同 研发了一套红外摄像系统,该系统可在 EBRII 反应堆容器内操作。通 过修改相对便宜的 FLIR M-Series (M-626L) 长波热感摄像机,并增加 图二 熔融金属钠从中间热交换器流出的红外图像

惰性气体增压系统,红外摄像系统很快就被研发出来,而且成本不足 $30,000。

 操作环境 在设备部件进行钠残留液体处理时,EBR II 反应堆容器内的红外 摄像系统必须在严峻的环境中安全可靠的运行。反应堆内严峻的环境

以清楚地确认严峻环境下钠处理过程。图二显示了主容器内熔融金属钠 从中间热交换器流出的红外图像。即使摄像头被钠处理过程中产生的浓 雾遮住,红外摄像机也能够持续拍摄反应堆内主要组件的图像。


 辐射水平高达 300 Rad  湿度超过 95% RH  钠反应造成的高腐蚀性氢氧化钠喷洒  处理液强酸喷洒  钠反应产生的易爆炸氢气  熔融钠金属溅洒 图三 可视图像(左)被浓烟遮盖,但是红外摄像依然 提供了主反应堆内起反应的钠组件的清晰视图。

 系统修改 对红外摄像仪的修改包括密封摄像机外壳,在外壳上钻通气孔以 便保持氮气冲洗。调整可视红外摄像机的焦距,以便使反应堆容器内 物体可视度最优化。34 英尺的吊杆和定制的摄像头接口可以准确的垂

 经验教训 汲取的经验教训包括发现了红外摄像机内的氧化钒焦平面阵列不

阵列的红外摄像的影响以及影响程度的比较有待进一步研究。 另一个重大发现是了解到辐射测量的红外摄像机上的温度读数总要比红外摄像可视其表面的接触式热电偶上的读数精确。一旦目标表面的辐 射系数确定,红外摄像基本可以得出一个相较于热电偶更加精确的温度读数。

José Cabrera 核 电 站 的 拆除史(西班牙) 作者:Rodríguez Silva, Manuel

介绍 ENRESA 是西班牙国家电力公司,它主要负责核设施拆除和电站运营许可证转移。 José Cabrera 核电站由西班牙天然气公司所有,它的建设始于 1964 年,1969 年正式投入商业运行。核电蒸汽供应系统是由西屋电气设计和 提供,它是由一个小型压水反应堆组成。该反应堆的授权热功率为 510MW,电功率为 160MW,还包括所有保证电站在安全环境下有效运行的辅助和 安全系统。 2006 年 4 月 30 日,José Cabrera 核电站被彻底关闭。2 年后,即 2008 年 4 月 30 日,ENRESA 要求能源部转移该核电站的经营许可证,并要 求获得执行电站拆除和退役计划的相关授权。 2010 年 2 月 1 日,ENRESA 获得授权拆除 José Cabrera 核电站。当时乏燃料已经从燃料池中清除并储藏在现场的一个干式贮藏设施的容器里。 废物和材料管理的系统及辅助设施已经作了修改,准备工作基本完成。该项目的主要挑战就是拆除主要部件(容器,

蒸汽发生器,稳压器,主泵和主回路)和使用大容量的集装箱(CE-2b)减少放射活度较高组件的分散。 内容 José Cabrera 核电站的除役拆厂作业是一个动态过程,它包括一系列活动,如拆卸,净化去污,解密,场地的拆除和现场恢复。 该项目的主要活动可以划分为七个关键部分, 其中 2 个部分贯穿整个过程(放射学特征和放射性废物管理)。 这些活动的实施要遵循不同部分的拆除方案的框架内规定,方案涵盖主要标准、方法论和必要预先分析。这些方案包括可用的技术方案和不 同的选择方案、鉴别工作干扰因素和主要活动规划。 自电站运行许可证从西班牙天然气公司转移到国家电力公司那天开始,拆除工作预计需要花费 6 年的时间,拆除预算为 1.35 亿欧元,不包 括乏燃料管理费用。

结论 •

José Cabrera 核电站的除役拆厂工作给 ENRESA 带来了新的挑战,例如:

大部件的移除和管理以及中级废料的管理是不能在 El Cabril 废料处置场进行的。

重点 新闻 国家能源局公告发布 67 项能源行业核电标准


  在隋永滨看来,福岛核事故虽然给国内核电装备制造业带来 不小的影响,但也带来了很多需要反省和思考的问题。   记者整理其发言,发现问题可以大致概括为发展速度与产品 质量的关系、产能过剩必须引起重视、产能过剩可能引来的市场 恶性竞争。   “个人认为中国的核电发展前一阶段有点太快,任务太集中, 这种前提下,国产设备的质量很难保证。福岛事故后,中国放慢 了核电发展速度,对装备制造业来说,是件好事,我们对自己的 核电的质保体系、对产品有进一步的反思和反省。”隋永滨说。 来源:

按照《能源领域行业标准化管理办法 ( 试行 )》的规定,经审查,国 家能源局批准《压水堆核电厂用碳钢和低合金钢第 14 部分:2、3 级对焊 无缝管件》等 67 项能源行业核电标准 (NB,见附件 ),现予以发布。

申海科技成为核电保护神 连日来,我市奖牌企业申海工业技术科技有限公司一片繁忙的生产 景象。由于上海电气、哈尔滨电气、苏州阀门、沈阳鼓风等数家国内核电


三代 AP1000 产品专业制造公司的订单纷至沓来,申海的核电产品镀铬车 间更是生产满负荷。

中通协会长隋永滨:核电装备制造业产能已过剩 近日,总投资达 70 亿元的核电设备项目已在四川成都的天府新区开 工。而从今年 6 月起,在江苏南京的江宁滨江开发区,一个规划面积达 2 平方公里的中国南京滨江核电装备科技产业园即将崛起。 无论是东北的老工业基地,还是中西部的新兴工业区,核电装备制造 业的吸引力有增无减。而这些地区所考虑的关键就在于,国家正大力支持 核电装备的国产化,而且核电在未来的中国乃至世界都具备良好的发展前 景和潜在的庞大市场。 但是,中国机械工业联合会总工程师隋永滨却在日前举办的第八届中 国核能国际大会上表示,国内核电装备制造业已经显露出产能过剩,将来 有可能能量放空。 据隋永滨介绍,从现在核岛几大设备来看,包括锻件、反应堆压力容器、 蒸汽发生器、堆内构件、控制棒驱动机构这些主要设备,包括环形吊车等, 现在的年产能力大致在 12 套左右,按照目前国内装备制造的情况,以后每 年制造 12 套百万千万核电机组所需设备应该没有问题。 但他也指出了目前还比较弱的环节,即堆内构件和控制棒驱动机构的 生产能力大致在 6 套左右,与其他设备相比还存在差距。此外,核岛主泵 目前仍是国内外企业合资在做,还处于引进技术和消化吸收的阶段。

  “涉及核岛的另外一个国产化难点就是核仪控系统和关键的核 级仪表,目前基本上都是从国外进口。核二级泵、核三级泵全部 实现了国产化;核一级阀门少量仍需进口,如稳压器安全阀和主 蒸汽隔离阀。但是,总体来说,我国的核级泵和核级阀门约 80% 可以实现国内采购。”隋永滨指出。   据了解,从长远来看,常规岛的工业汽轮机和发电机完全可 以实现国产化,一年的生产能力应该在 12-15 套左右。   另外,BOP 系统(除核岛和常规岛之外的其他辅助系统)中正 在趋近国产化的就是应急柴油发电机组。   信息显示���目前,从东北的黑龙江、吉林、辽宁,到沿海的 山东、江苏、上海、浙江、广东,再到中西部的湖北、江西、四川, 很多省市都把发展核电装备纳入当地“十二五”期间振兴装备制 造业的重点规划。

三代核电技术 (AP1000) 是目前国际上最先进、最安全的核电技术, 较二代 (AP600) 技术、设计理念更先进、安全性更好、预防发生事故措施 更先进,建造要求更高。申海公司承担了国内核三代 AP1000 产品的加工 重任,为反应堆的控制棒驱动机构、堆内构件、爆破阀等产品提供表面技 术处理。 堆内构件紧固件表面处理技术开发是大型先进压水堆核电站国家重 大科技专项的关键技术研发任务之一,它包括了产品的电镀硬铬与磷化。 核三代堆内机件表面处理镀铬是一项关键的核心技术,也是当今国际表面 处理的顶尖前沿技术,它是保障核电站安全运作必不可少的关键技术措施, 可以称得上是核电产品的“保护神”。过去,国内表面硬铬处理技术无论 从硬度、厚度、均匀性等方面远远达不到三代核电技术的要求,国产化难 度极大,许多国内的电镀企业解决不了这一难题。核电国产化是对一个国 家工业水平和能力的整体考验。核安全已经成为世界各国特别关注的大事, 承担制造核电设备及部件的工厂,对其设施、技术、经济、管理水平以及 员工素质都有相当高的要求。申海公司具有近四十年的电镀经验,是目前 国内生产规模最大,加工镀种最全、科技含量最高的的材料表面处理企业 之一,公司通过投入与研发,建成适应核电产品的专用车间和连续电镀生 产线,短时间内取得了专业性的重大突破。严格按国际 AP1000 标准,通 过特殊的电镀、磷化工艺,核电产品铬镀层达到:均匀走位好、无微孔点、 镀层薄 ; 镀铬层的硬度与耐磨度、耐弯折度得到了充分的保证 ; 具备高强 度的耐腐蚀性 ; 能承受超高、低温度。产品通过了国家核权威机构中核、 中广核考核认可,表面硬铬技术处理的水准达到了核三代 AP1000 标准, 代表了当今国际核电技术最先进的水平,完全符合我国目前建设核三代电 站的标准要求,改变了我国传统的表面处理工艺技术的现状,填补了国内 核电行业电镀硬铬产品的空白,结束了中国核电驱动机堆内构件靠国外进 口的历史。 现在,申海公司电镀和磷化的核三代反应堆内 AP1000 产品已应用到 当今国际最先进的浙江三门和山东海阳核电站的建设,这两个核电站是目 前世界上首次投入商业运行的 AP1000 核电项目。

  人们期望比利时核能监管机构这个月能够决定是否允许比利 时 Electrabel 电力公司重启 Doel-3 反应堆和 Tinhange-2 反应 堆,6 个月前,由于超声波读数显示反应堆容器封头有裂痕,这 两个反应堆被关闭。现在 Electrabel 电力公司的反对者和核能 行业的反对者都在大肆鼓吹该事件会造成的不良影响。上个月, 法国苏伊士集团下属的 Electrabel 公司发布消息称,他们已经 对该事件做了深入调查,并推荐重新开启这两个反应堆。然而 1 月 10 日,欧洲绿党委任的材料学家兼顾问 Ilse Tweer 发表了一 篇关于反对重启核反应堆的报告。Tweer 的报告总结道“重启这 两个反应堆是一个危险举措。我们不能排除局部热应力会加大反 应堆容器封头的裂痕,从而导致反应堆运行失常,而这可能会造 成灾难性的后果,尤其是在人口密集的经济高速发达地区,这种 影响尤为严重。”


   俄 罗 斯 国 际 新 闻 通 讯 社 称, 俄 罗 斯 高 级 官 员 Nikolay Patrushev 将 要 会 见 其 印 度 同 僚。1 月 10 日, 其 向 俄 罗 斯 记 者透漏印度政府极有可能与俄罗斯合作建造第二个核电站。 Patrushev 说道:“这是印度政府第一次谈到将为建造下一个核 电站留出一笔专款。”这个新的核电站将会位于印度泰米尔纳德 邦,目前该地区已建有 Kudankulam 核电站。印度政府计划今年 在该地区建造两个俄罗斯产的反应堆,并额外建立两个 Rosatom 反应堆。由于西孟加拉州政府极其反对该项目,一个新的核电站 可能会代替俄罗斯核电站转而在印度哈里普尔建立。与此同时, 尽管印度民众强烈反对在杰塔普建立核电站,印度官员却极力向 法国政府证实他们将会与法国合作在马哈拉施特拉邦建立核电 站。1 月 10 日,印度外交部长 Minister Salman Khurshid 在巴 黎会见法国同僚时在新闻发布会中讲到:“在印度核电行业,我 们仍在就杰塔普核电站项目做出努力。印法双发都在尽最大努力 确保该项目的安全。”


  东京新闻在 1 月 6 日发布的一篇文章中称,日本政府正在考 虑对来自韩国、越南及亚洲其它国家的乏燃料进行后处理。然而 韩国首尔却驳回了这一观点,首尔现在正就重新签订 2014 年美 韩双边核能合作协议与美国华盛顿进行协商,这份协议将会允许 韩国高温处理本国的乏燃料。韩国称,由于美国已经同意日本优 先处理美国的乏燃料,因此韩国也希望具备再处理本国大量乏燃 料的能力。日本的这一项提议可以看作是美韩协商的最终答案, 然而首尔不会依赖日本进行本国的乏燃料后处理。韩国 Yonhap 新闻服务机构称韩国外交部发言人提到:“韩国政府尚未考虑这 一计划。”尽管日本延迟关闭大批本国核电机组,东京政府仍然 渴望能够开展后处理项目。即便韩国政府不肯合作,这项决议依 然能够反射出日本期望向越南核电站出售反应堆的愿望。


  立陶宛新的左翼政府表示维萨基纳斯核电站将会采用日立 公司设计的先进沸水堆,而就在 10 月发布的民意调查显示广大 民众对该项目持有反对意见。1 月 8 日,新上任的能源部部长 Jaroslav Neverovic 发言说:“如果这是最佳、最具现代化、 最安全可行的解决方案,如果这是一个局域性计划, 维萨基纳


斯核电站项目可以继续。”资深政党联盟的合作伙伴——社会民 主工党早在民意调查公布之前就对该项目进行过猛烈抨击,他认 为这根本不能解决立陶宛国内能源产品的不足问题。而立陶宛总 统 Dalia Grybauskaite 却大力支持该项目。与此同时,经济部 部长 1 月 8 日发言称将会指派新的人选管理维萨基纳斯核电站项 目。


  Alstom-Atomenergomash 公司是法俄建立的生产涡轮机的合 资公司,该公司于 12 月末发言称将会在俄罗斯南部的伏尔加顿 斯克市制造印有 Arabelle 商标的反应堆用涡轮机。由于俄罗斯 的涡轮机生产能力水平低,成立于 2007 年的这家法俄合资公司 对于俄罗斯而言意义重大。合资公司的领导层称,启动该生产基 地的决议表明俄罗斯将会于 2013 年开始进行涡轮机的大批量成 产工作。早在苏维埃时期,伏尔加顿斯克市就是本国重型设备 的生产地,而至今却有 26 年闲置时间。Alstom-Atomenergomash 公司计划制造 Arabelle 牌涡轮机、1,200-1,800 MW 的发电机、 冷凝器及其它涡轮机匹配设备。报道称,第一批制造的两个涡轮 机将被用于俄罗斯加里宁格勒市的 Baltiysky 核电站。


  1 月 7 日, 联 邦 法 院 判 决 美 国 核 管 理 委 员 会( 以 下 简 称 NRC)违背《美国环保法案》,原因是 NRC 未采纳民众意见同意 了安特吉能源公司可以享受当年印第安角第 3 核电站项目同样的 待遇,即不受纽约威彻斯特郡根据制定的消防安全条例的约束。 这源于 2007 年州众议院议员 Richard Brodsky 受理的一个案件, 当时案件参与人极其反对印第安角第 3 核电站项目享受免责待 遇。如今该法院作出以下裁决:NRC 要么必须解释民众反对安特 吉公司享受免责待遇的不合理之处;要么采取其它更为合理的措 施。2007 年 NRC 同意安特吉公司可以不受某些法规的制约,前 提是安特吉公司必须保证防火剂 Hemyc 有 1 个小时的耐烧能力, NRC 之所以有如此要求是因为 2005 年人们发现 Hemyc 的耐烧能 力根本不足 1 个小时。联邦法院认为 NRC 同意的免责案件将会是 一个“复杂的防火承诺”,因为如果 Hemyc 不达标,运营商可能 会选用其它有效的替代方案。


  由芬兰两大核电运行商 TVO 电力公司和 Fortum 电力公司共 同创建的合资公司——Posiva Oy 公司去年 12 月 28 日向芬兰就 业和经济部(以下简称 MEE)提交乏燃料地质处置库的建造许可 申请。MEE 将于 2014 年年底之前收集来自民众、股东的意见及 芬兰核能监管部门的安全评估。假设 MEE 同意颁发许可证,2015 年 Posiva Oy 公司将可以在奥尔基洛托核电站建造乏燃料处置 库,并可以从 2022 年开始进行废料处理。就目前的计划看来, 该处置库的乏燃料的来源有 TVO 公司在奥尔基洛托的两个反应 堆、Fortum 公司在洛维萨的两个反应堆以及其它在奥尔基洛托在 建和准备要建的反应堆。Fennovoima Oy 公司原计划建造一个独 立的反应堆,目前关于这一计划的进展尚未明确。如果 Posiva 公司同意接受 Fennovoima 公司的乏燃料,那么 Posiva 公司还要 再申请一个许可证。然而最近有消息称 Fennovoima 公司最大的 股东有意撤资,所以该公司和该项目前途未卜。
