Cold testing completed at Pakistan’s 2200 MW Karachi Nuclear Power Plant

China National Nuclear Corporation (#CNNC) has completed cold functional testing at unit 2 of the Karachi nuclear power plant (#Kanupp) in Pakistan.

The two units (2&3) under construction at Kanupp are the first exports of China’s Hualong One reactor design.

Cold functional testing at Karachi 2&3 involved checking some 7200 welds and 800 mechanical connection points within the test boundary for leaks on seven pressure platforms, CNNC said. All indicators met the acceptance criteria, and installation quality and performance meet design requirements.

Completion of the cold test on 2 December was overseen by the Pakistan Nuclear Regulatory Authority and the Pakistan Atomic Energy Commission. It marks the completion of the main work of the nuclear island installation and the start of the system commissioning stage, CNNC said.

Hot testing will follow, then first fuel loading and finally grid-connected power generation.

Construction of Karachi 2 began in 2015 and unit 3 in 2016 for commercial operation in 2021 and 2022. Currently, four Hualong One units are being built in China – two at Fuqing NPP in Fujian province, and two at Fangchenggang NPP in Guangxi – all scheduled for commercial operation in 2019-2020.

  1. Rajnath Singh says that Hindooosthan will rescind its commitment to NFU.


    1st these Hindoos alomgwith Mossad and CIA bombed Pakistani Military institutions and bases to conince the world about the rogue nukes theory.When all that failed – id.est.,the P-Nukes are safe in Pakistani hands – these Hindoos have dropped out of NFU.

    Is that a surprise ?

    Nein ! The word Hindoo means liar,cheater and thief !

    The wisdom of the “children of Cyrus,Darius and Xerxes”,encapsulates the “transcendence of Human thought”, the “Deuterosis of the Dindoo”, as under:

    A “Persian dictionary”,titled “Lughet-e-Kishwari”,published in Lucknow in 1964,gives the meaning of the word Hindu as “chore [thief], dakoo [dacoit],raahzan [waylayer], and ghulam [slave].

    The white man needs to understand the psyche of the Hindooo !dindooohindoo

    Their Hero is a man called Rama,who was called an impotent gay pansy,by his wife Seeta !

    This man Rama who Hindoos consider as a God used an army of apes to make a bridge to Lanka which took 12 years to make !(Rama did not use Hindos or Humans)

    This man Rama,used an army of millions of apes to rescue his wife from Lanka (Rama did not use Hindos or Humans) !

    This man Rama,whose wife was airlifted by a Lankan King and taken to Lanka in a few minutes – could not fly to Lanka (although he was a God) for 12 years !

    This man Rama,could not make a ship for 12 years (when his wife was in the custody of a Lanka King) to transport his army of apes and rescue his wife !

    The Hindoos are a race of cowards,and it is cowards which use Nukes as a 1st use option.

    These Hindoos are a threat to the world !

    The UN and G-7 have to control these apes !
