The contract is aimed at steam turbines, generators and auxiliary systems of the three nuclear plants located in the Dapeng Peninsula on the coast of South China Sea.

GE will provide engineering support, spare parts, on-site service, repair and life extension services for the steam turbines to enable the plants fulfil their role of delivering sustainable electricity for the Guangdong Province, Hong Kong Special Administrative Region.

It will also help in reducing the operating costs per unit kilowatt-hour of the nuclear power plants while saving on fuel costs.

GE Power Services business in China general manager Xu Xin said: “Each MYA solution is customized to meet the unique needs of different power plants. Our goal is to bring long-term value to power plants, like the Daya Bay nuclear plant, with agreements focused on key metrics for the equipment such as availability, operational flexibility and efficiency.”

The Chinese nuclear power base was originally built with Alstom whose power business was acquired by GE in 2015.
