Engineering groups Framatome ANP and Alstom are reportedly close to securing contracts to supply nuclear equipment to China.

Framatome ANP, a joint venture with Areva and Siemens, has apparently won the tender process for a control centre equipment contract for two reactors to be built as part of the Ling Dong project, also referred to as Ling Ao Phase II. The contract is worth around 3% of the estimated $4 billion cost of the project, or close to $120 million.

Alstom, meanwhile, with China’s Dong Fang Electric Group, is expected to win the tender for two turbo-alternators at the plant with an estimated cost of 15-20% of the project’s total cost or around $800 million.
