On 31st October 2017, Hong Kong based architectural firm, 10 DESIGN, joined Egis to form an integrated design group with a global capability.
From 11 to 13 October, CGN hosted Top Level Forum on seismic Safety of Major Power Engineering in Daya Bay. EGIS China experts Mr. Arnaud Cauchois Participated this forum and delivered a presentation.
Power system is the lifeline of the national economy and social life. As the clean energy, nuclear and hydropower play an important role in the national energy Strategy.
China has the largest nuclear power construction scale in the world. The safety and reliability of the major power engineering is very important. Once suffered from external disaster, e.g earthquakes, destroy of the building could incur disastrous consequences. Therefore, earthquake safety is the key issue that must be faced and properly solved by major power projects.
The purpose of the forum is to achieve technology sharing, promote the transformation of scientific and technological achievements, promote international exchanges and cooperation, and enhance mutual understanding.
During the presentation, Mr. Cauchois has introduced the mew methodology that developed by EGIS, in order to;
- Redundancies and inaccuracies avoidance
- Detail Optimization
- Cost and time saving for design and work execution
- Actual margin assessment
EGIS make some tests with good results, and this approach is used on UK HPC project.
The Joint-Venture constituted of EGIS and Wuhan Bridge Construction Engineering Construction Supervision Limited Company has signed the Construction Supervision Contract on “Shangqiu-Hefei-Hangzhou Passenger Dedicated Line: Package SHJL-3” with Jingfu Railway Passenger Transportation Anhui Limited Company. The project is 794.55Km long and represents an estimated investment cost of RMB 80.4 billion. Shang-He-Hang PDL is expected to be opened by the end of 2020.

Egis China is involved in the Sino-French eco-district project in Tiexi
On 7th of April 2015, Egis China General Manager Laurent Malet accompanied a delegation from the French Embassy to support the project of “Sino-French Ecological district” under discussion in Tiexi area in Shenyang. After meeting several French and Chinese companies interested in the project for breakfast, Mr. Malet took part to several meetings with Shenyang municipality and officials in charge of Tiexi district development.
After several successful projects in this field notably in Zhuhai, Egis China is hoping to continue assisting Chinese municipalities in their urban planning, notably for the development of new economic and development zones, with the goal to make them attractive and sustainable.
Construction is progressing at a steady pace
As you can observe on these pictures taken last April during a visit of Egis team in the Unit 2 of Taishan EPR, Taishan EPR construction is progressing at a steady pace.
Several Egis engineers are still actively working on site to provide assistance on civil engineering issues and clarifications for construction companies. Egis on-site team even welcomed at the beginning of May a new experienced engineer coming from Poland.
