China to build 6 nuke reactors

Energy hungry China is trying to diversify its energy mix by pushing the use of nuclear and renewable energy sources, such as wind and solar power.

China is set to build six nuclear reactors in the southeastern province of Fujian, in the latest plank of the country’s ambitious nuclear power program.

State-run energy provider China National Nuclear Corporation and China Huadian Group, one of China’s top five power producers, has signed an agreement to build six reactors of 1,000-megawatt capacity, China Daily reported.

The report did not say when the construction will begin or be completed, nor did it give the total investment involved.

Energy hungry China is trying to diversify its energy mix by pushing the use of nuclear and renewable energy sources, such as wind and solar power.

China’s current nuclear generating capacity is 8,700 megawatts, just under two percent of total output.

With the nation’s largest nuclear power generator, the Tianwan plant due to come on line by the end of this year, China’s nuclear power capacity will be over 9,100 megawatts, earlier press reports said.
