The world's first onshore commercial modular pressurized water reactor, Linglong One, completed its final stage of construction in Hainan province, as reported by China Metallurgical News on Wednesday.

According to the metallurgy news outlet, Taiyuan Iron and Steel Group, based in Shanxi province, supplied the stainless steel plates used to make Linglong One's internal components.

The company's mission is "serving the country with steel and building a strong steel nation", which can be seen in its role at the forefront of advanced stainless steel material research and development.

As early as 2016, shortly after the Linglong One passed the safety review of the International Atomic Energy Agency, the company began actively tracking the stainless steel materials required for the project.
