In fact, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries aims at the European nuclear power market and launches a war against Areva. Introduction: according to Bloomberg news, Japanese manufacturing giant Mitsubishi Heavy Industries recently stated that the company has officially set its sights on the European market and plans to win the first nuclear power order from Europe next year. In view of Areva's monopoly position in the European nuclear power market, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries is undoubtedly pointing to Europe in the front
according to Bloomberg, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, a Japanese manufacturing giant, recently said that the company has officially set its sights on the European market and plans to win the first nuclear power order from Europe next year. In view of Areva's monopoly position in the European nuclear power market, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries pointed out that Europe was undoubtedly sending a challenge to the former. Bloomberg even described it as "Mitsubishi Heavy Industries challenging Areva in its backyard"
Akira sawa, vice president of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries in charge of nuclear business, said in a recent media interview that as Japan's largest heavy industry manufacturer, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries has made technical improvements to the 1.7 million KW nuclear reactor independently developed. The reactor is now equipped with advanced technology of fault self-test, and the safety factor is further improved. Nordic countries are "very likely" to choose their products, "We should enter the European market in a timely and stable manner, especially the Nordic countries that have higher requirements for nuclear energy imports and previously said no to us"
akira sawa did not specify which country he referred to as "European country", but according to the news from Europe, this country is likely to be Finland. The external protection of Finnish testing machines is very important. TVO, a public utility company, recently revealed that they have included products such as the European advanced pressurized water reactor (EU-APWR) produced by Mitsubishi Heavy Industries in its shortlist of nuclear imports. In addition to Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, the enterprises on this list also include Areva of France, Toshiba group of Japan, Ge Hitachi nuclear power company, and hydro atomic power of South Korea. There are four Asian companies on this list, but only one in Europe, which shows that the impact of the test sample has led to the rise of Asian nuclear energy enterprises. At the end of last year, Korean enterprises defeated the invincible Areva and won the large order of UAE nuclear power, which has made the competition between Asian and European enterprises increasingly fierce
in fact, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries has made attempts in overseas markets before. As early as March, 2007, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries won orders for nuclear reactors from Texas, the United States, with an order amount of up to US $5.17 billion, becoming the first Japanese company to independently export nuclear reactors to the US market. In Japan, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries has to face the challenge of Toshiba group, another nuclear power giant, but Mitsubishi Heavy Industries has been doing well. At present, the company has built 24 nuclear power plants in Japan. At the end of last year, the 912000 kW nuclear power plant built by Mitsubishi Heavy Industries for Hokkaido power company has also been put into operation
the nuclear leakage accidents at the Three Mile Island nuclear power plant in the United States and the Chernobyl nuclear power plant in Ukraine in the last century have made the safety of nuclear power plants the focus of world attention. After entering the 21st century, the terrorist attacks represented by the 9.11 incident will not seriously affect the control results. Few people worry that terrorists will take the destructive nuclear power facilities as the target of terrorist attacks, which makes the safety of nuclear power more complex. At present, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries of Japan, Toshiba group and Areva of France have developed new nuclear power plant construction technology that can prevent aircraft attacks, which to a large extent makes Mitsubishi Heavy Industries dare to put forward the slogan of entering Europe
according to Akira sawa, the nuclear reactor designed by Mitsubishi Heavy Industries has a set of safety system integrated with electronic technology, which can give early warning to staff before the accident, thus reducing the possibility of serious accidents. Daniel Aldrich, a political science professor at Purdue University in the United States, said that at present, many top nuclear power enterprises are improving the safety of nuclear power from the two aspects of preventing terrorist attacks and traditional nuclear leakage accidents, which gives people reason to have confidence in the future of nuclear power
