A technology demonstration project designed to simultaneously produce and supply heat and water, built by the State Power Investment Corp Shandong Nuclear Power and Tsinghua University, went online in Haiyang, East China's Shandong province on May 11.

By extracting steam from the Haiyang Nuclear Power Unit, the technology drives the hydrothermal co-production unit to directly turn seawater into high-quality fresh water with a temperature of 95 C, realizing the simultaneous production of heat and water for the first time.

The project represents a significant advance in that it produces no carbon and requires no additional source of energy to desalinate the water.
