The center is the first large turnkey nuclear facility project exported by China. Phase-I includes a heavy water reactor and other associated facilities. Phase-II consists of nine hot cells for post-irradiation examination on fuel elements and material. The reactor nominal capacity is 15MW and the thermal neutron flux rate is 2.4x1014n/cm2.s. It could be used for basic and application research, and also used for radioisotopes and radiopharmaceuticals production, silicon doping, fuel element and material radiation test, neutron activation analysis, cold neutron research, nuclear instrument scale, etc. Some key techniques were transferred to Algeria and local
Pakistan Chashma Nuclear Power Plant Unit-1/2/3/4 witness CNOS’s rich experience of EPC and world class management capacity. C1, the first nuclear power plant exported by China and a milestone of China’s nuclear power going abroad, was praised as an “excellent model” by the Pakistani government. C2, another model of Sino-Pakistan cooperation in science and technology, met its provisional acceptance target 111 days ahead of schedule. At the moment, C3 and C4 are also going well; the project progress, safety, quality and cost are well controlled.
The Karachi nuclear power plant is currently the largest nuclear power project in Pakistan. Karachi Unit 2 is the world's second HPR1000 demonstration project following Fuqing Unit 5, also the first exported HPR1000. On May 20th 2021, K-2 Unit entered commercial operation. Marking a decisive first step of the global journey for the homegrown Gen-III nuclear power technology, K-2 Unit has recorded the shortest construction period.
