In 2017, Zhenjiang Klockner-Moeller submitted an application for the design and manufacturing license of 1E level complete switchgear and control equipment to the National Nuclear Safety Administration. The company organized a lean team, carefully planned various work for obtaining 1E level licenses, overcame many challenges such as difficult key technologies and the COVID-19, and under the professional guidance and strong support of China Nuclear Power Engineering Co., Ltd, In November 2022, more than 70 tests of 1E level simulation components were successfully completed (among which the most critical 1E level seismic test was passed at the Tongji University testing institution in one go), achieving a phased victory in the evidence collection work. In the first quarter of 2023, Zhenjiang Klockner-Moeller successfully passed the expert review of nuclear safety equipment license; On May 15th, the National Nuclear Safety Administration officially issued the "Notice on Issuing the Design and Manufacturing License for Civil Nuclear Safety Equipment of Zhenjiang Klockner-Moeller Electric Co., Ltd.".

After years of hard working, Zhenjiang Moeller Electric Co., Ltd., with its determination to innovate and work hard, has promoted the certification process of 1E level complete switchgear and control equipment, and obtained the design and manufacturing license for civil nuclear safety equipment. This has become a key milestone for Zhenjiang Klockner-Moeller to continue empowering China's nuclear grade complete electrical industry, laying a solid foundation for vigorously undertaking nuclear power projects. In the future, Zhenjiang Klockner-Moeller will continue to strictly abide by laws and regulations such as the Nuclear Safety Law of the People's Republic of China, provide high-quality, safe, and reliable products and services for major national nuclear power engineering projects, and continue to safeguard the development of China's nuclear power and power industry.
Note: 1E level complete switchgear and control equipment are mainly used for reactor emergency shutdown, containment isolation, core emergency cooling, and other electrical equipment used to prevent excessive release of radioactive substances into the environment. When electrical equipment fails, it directly affects the nuclear safety of nuclear power plants. Therefore, the reliability and stability of electrical equipment have the highest standards and requirements in the industry. In 2016, the National Nuclear Safety Administration included complete sets of switchgear and control equipment in the scope of regulatory evidence collection. In 2017, it began to conduct full process supervision and inspection of the design, manufacturing, and testing related activities of nuclear safety grade complete sets of switchgear and control equipment.
