LR Energy helps China design shipborne nuclear power

 Major co-operation Framework Agreement signed between Nuclear Power Institute of China (NPIC) and Lloyd’s Register Energy for first-of-a-kind floating nuclear vessel. This new Framework Agreement is a powerful alliance to support the safe development of floating nuclear power generation.LR energy has announced a co-operative Framework Agreement with the Nuclear Power Institute of China (NPIC) in Chengdu, to assist in the design and development of a safe and secure floating vessel containing a Small Modular Reactor (SMR) – a first for China. Mark Bassett, Nuclear Director at Lloyd’s Register Energy, says:“NPIC recognises Lloyd’s Register’s unique combination of experience in nuclear, offshore and marine safety and regulation. Because we apply our expert knowledge to help clients design, construct and operate capital intensive assets to their highest levels of safety and performance, NPIC have asked us to help them safely achieve this technically challenging offshore nuclear programme.” The first contract under this Framework Agreement is to develop new nuclear safety regulations, safety guidelines, and nuclear code and standards for the floating vessel, that are consistent with Offshore and International Marine Regulations and the IAEA Nuclear Safety Standards. NPIC states:“We believe there is substantial opportunity to further efforts in developing safe, clean and sustainable power generation ...
