The reactor building of AP/CAP nuclear power plant is constructed open top. Open-Top Construction can reduce construction time, but will result the reactor building easily affected by bad weather. The two self-reliance projects, Sanmen and Haiyang, use a temporary cover to help the reactor building to withstand bad weather. However, the effects of using this temporary cover were limited. Based on the project logic, construction method and lessons learned, a special cover support is invented and several temporary cover designs are developed. The new developed cover is named AP/CAP Construction Cover Module.
