China installs reactor at nuclear plant

25 Jun 2014
Reports suggest that China has installed the reactor pressure vessel of the second unit at Chang Jiang nuclear plant.

The plant, which is under construction where CNNC, Huaneng Power International and China Huaneng Group plan to have the 2.6GW facility generating power by the end of 2015, is in its first phase.

This first phase includes the construction of two pressurised water reactors with a capacity of 650MWe, followed by phase 2 which builds a further two 650MWe generators.
