China National Nuclear Corporation's (CNNC) power generator in Zhangzhou, East China's Fujian Province, which used China's self-developed Hualong One nuclear reactor, completed its dome installation on Wednesday, according to the official WeChat account of CNNC, and, the generator is entering its internal construction phase.

CNNC said the installation of nuclear power plant's dome is a milestone for the overall construction process of Zhangzhou nuclear power plant. The dome will play an essential role in isolating nuclear radiation produced inside the reactor. 

Each Hualong One nuclear reactor can generate up to 10 billion kilowatt-hours of electricity per year, which can satisfy power demands for one million households. The reactor, once coming into operation, could substitute 3.12 million tons in coal consumption and 8.16 million tons of carbon dioxide emissions.
