In the Nuclear Simulator Laboratory, the operating features of a full scope nuclear reactor simulator and the MAAP severe accident simulation software will be demonstrated. In the low carbon energy education centre, 3-D immersive display of the core parts of the nuclear island of Daya Bay/Ling Ao Nuclear Power Plant will be shown, and information on various low carbon energies, such as wind and solar energy, will be displayed and explained. In addition, a model of China’s latest generation 3 nuclear reactor, Hualong 1, will be exhibited.

A group of 40 visitors of the Nuclear Division, being led by Ir Prof Vincent Ho the Divisional Chairman, visited the CLP Power Low Carbon Energy Education Centre (CLP Power LCEEC) of the City University of Hong Kong (CityU) on 31 August 2019.
The group was well received by Ir Dr B L Luk of CityU. The visit began with an introduction of different types of low carbon energy sources including wind, hydro, solar, gas and nuclear power. Numerous interactive software displays and physical models were used to explain the power generation principles, advantages and limitations of these types of low carbon energy often in the context of Hong Kong, as well as an interactive game for the visitors to optimise the energy mix for a city under certain inherent constraints. The centre also provides an extensive display of information on nuclear energy, including its fundamental knowledge, reactor principles, nuclear power plant operation and safety, the nuclear fuel cycle, radiation principles and its association with our daily life. One feature at the LCEEC is a scaled model of Hualong One Nuclear Reactor, China’s first indigenous, third-generation pressurized water nuclear (PWR), that is installed with various active and passive engineering systems to improve reactor safety to typically 10 times above that of a currently operating nuclear reactor. Besides the physical and animation displays, there was a 3D immersive display that gave the visitors a virtual tour inside the PWR reactor building.
Nuclear Division expressed sincere thanks to Ir Dr Luk for providing an enlightening visit and an insight into the merits and characteristics of each low carbon energy source and a low carbon future.
