The project was officially launched in January 2013. The team took four and a half years to conquer the key technologies such as the design of Guohe No. 1 reactor pressure vessels, the manufacturing process of key forgings and the manufacturing of reactor pressure vessels, thus fully mastering the design and manufacturing technology of Guohe No. 1 reactor pressure vessels, realizing the independent design and manufacturing of Guohe No. 1 reactor pressure vessels, and laying a technical foundation for the construction of Guohe No. 1 Nuclear Power Plant with independent intellectual property rights.

The project has obtained a number of scientific and technological achievements with independent intellectual property rights, including 5 granted patents (4 invention patents), 1 technical secret, 11 research reports, 9 technological regulations and technical standards for enterprises. The project has trained a team of talents who have mastered the design, manufacturing and testing techniques of Guohe No. 1 reactor pressure vessels. The results of the project will be effectively transformed and will be popularized and applied in projects such as Guohe No. 1 Nuclear Power Plant Unit 1.
