    Chairman Wang Binghua, invited by Turkish Ministry of Energy and Natural Resources, attended the “Tomorrow’s Nuclear and Today’s Realities” session of the Congress, and shared his views concerning trends, prospects, challenges and risks of nuclear power development.

 

 

    During the Congress, Mr. Wang also held a brief talk with Turkish Energy Minister Berat Albayrak.

 

 

    Invited by Turkish Ministry of Energy and Natural Resources, SPIC and many world-leading energy enterprises made their presence at the Expo, in which SPIC highlighted the nuclear power technology CAP1400 from the aspects of R&D achievements, technological superiority and progress of its pilot project. As the world’s largest passive pressurized water reactor technology, CAP1400 attracted great attention from countries intending to develop nuclear power, and has made significant progress in markets such as Turkey and South Africa. Chinese and Turkish energy authorities entered into a memorandum of understanding on civil nuclear cooperation during the G20 Energy Ministerial Meeting in June 2016. Currently, State Nuclear Power Technology Corporation and Westinghouse Electric Corporation are jointly working on project development in Turkey, and the project proposal is pending Turkish government approval.

 

 

    During the four-day exhibition, the booth of SPIC attracted great attention from the Congress delegates including Minister Khalid al-Falih of Industry and Mineral Resources of Saudi Arabia, who were highly interested in the cutting edges and safety features of CAP1400 and favorable to the development prospect of the technology.
