Plans & Construction

China is expected to give the go-ahead by the end of the year for construction to begin on six new nuclear reactors at three sites, the First Financial Daily reported.

The three sites are Hongyanhe, Shidaowan and Fuqing. The only one of the three that does not yet have reactors in operation or under construction is Shidaowan, near the coastal city of Rongcheng in Shandong province, where the plan is to construct a CAP-1400 Generation III domestic design reactor, which is based on the Westinghouse AP1000 design.
