Established in February of 1970, the Shanghai Nuclear Engineering Research and Design Institute (SNERDI), a high-tech enterprise and subsidiary of the State Nuclear Power Technology Corporation since June of 2007, is a key research and design institute with expertise in nuclear electric power technology. It has been at present granted by the national competent authority more than twenty qualification certificates, some of which are State Class A Certificate of Engineering Design, Certificate of Approval for Enterprises with Foreign Trade Rights, Certificate of Foreign Economic Cooperation. SNERDI has possessed three certificates relating to its management systems of quality, environment, health, and safety (EHS) in conformity with ISO-9001:2000, ISO-14001:2004, and GB/T 28001-2001.

SNERDI has turned out to be a leading technology research and design institute for nuclear electric power in China. Upon completion of the self-design of the first Nuclear Power Plant, the Qinshan NPP, in mainland China, SNERDI has performed again excellent design of Chashma Nuclear Power Plants (CHASNUPP unit 1 and 2) in Pakistan followed by nuclear engineering services. Since the founding of SNERDI, more than 300 research and design projects have been awarded by the State and Ministry not only for the progress made in science and technology but also for excellent design, inter alia, the design of Qinshan 300MWe Nuclear Power Plant has won the Top Grade Prize of the State Science and Technology Achievement (SSTA) and Special Prize of the Best National Engineering Design.

There are over 1200 employees at present, among which more than 1000 are technically skilled professionals with expertise of nuclear electric power. The business scope of SNERDI is as plant design, EPC contracting, project consulting, equipment research and design, project management, equipment procurement, technology development and engineering services.

At present, SNERDI is both committed to introduction, digestion, absorption and innovation of Generation III technology, and responsible for the overall design of Sanmen and Haiyang nuclear power self-reliance supporting projects while performing plant design of Gen. II plus Nuclear Power Plants as well. Besides, SNERDI has also engaged with AP1000 follow-up projects and Advanced Large Size PWR projects.

With 'Customer the First, Reputation the Highest' as its business objective, SNERDI is open with good reputation and service to domestic and overseas market both in the aspect of nuclear and civil engineering services.
