GE’s power services division has signed a multiyear agreement (MYA) to provide repair and maintenance services to Daya Bay, Ling Ao, and Ling Dong nuclear power plants in China.

The plants are owned by Daya Bay Nuclear Power Operations and Management (DNMC).

Under the 12-year long deal, GE will provide services to the plants' steam turbines, generators, and auxiliary systems.

GE will also supply spare parts and engineering support, as well as on-site services and repair.

The new MYA will help ensure reliable and sustainable supply of electricity to the Guangdong Province in China. Operating costs per unit kWh and fuel costs are expected to reduce upon completion.

"The new MYA will help ensure reliable and sustainable supply of electricity to the Guangdong Province in China."

DNMC deputy general manager Li Zhishen said: “Operating for more than 20 years, the Daya Bay nuclear power base rigorously pursues the principles of ‘safety first, quality foremost and operational excellence', and its leading operating performance has been well-recognised worldwide.

“The MYA we signed with GE, an industry leader in power equipment development, manufacturing, repair, and maintenance, will help us steadily uplift equipment reliability and operating performance.”

The Daya Bay nuclear power base was originally built by Alstom. GE acquired Alstom’s power business in 2015.

Featuring six 1,000MW units, with a total installed capacity of 6,120MW and an annual generation of 45TWh, Daya Bay base eliminates the use of 14.57 million tonnes of coal, alongside reducing 35.9 million tonnes of carbon, 340,000t of sulfur oxide, and 220,000t of nitrogen oxide emissions.
