China AP1000® Nuclear Power Plants

In 2007, Shaw and Westinghouse signed a historic agreement to provide the world’s first four AP1000 nuclear power plants in China, with two set for the Sanmen site in Zhejiang province and two for the Haiyang site in Shandong province. The scope of Shaw’s work includes providing engineering, procurement, startup, information management, technology transfer and project management services.
