AVEVA announced, 24 September, that it has signed a strategic Memorandum of Cooperation (MoC) with nuclear power plant design company, China Nuclear Power Design Company Ltd. (CNPDC).
As part of the agreement CNPDC has pledged to use AVEVA’s PDMS 3-dimentional plant design environment for its AP1000 (Westinghouse) and generation III Chinese nuclear builds. The company already uses PDMS exclusively for all AREVA-technology nuclear projects.
“We signed the MoC in order to collaborate together on mutually beneficial initiatives including jointly-developed applications for wider distribution, technical support and training,” said Paul Eveleigh, AVEVA executive vice president for Greater China.
