LONDON, Sept 16 China plans to build more than
60 nuclear plants in the coming decade, a top Chinese industry
official said on Friday.
Zheng Mingguang, vice president and chief nuclear designer
at China's State Nuclear Power Technology Corporation (SNPTC),
told Reuters at the World Nuclear Association conference in
London that China would build about 30 reactors in the next five
years and more in the five years after that.
He said that each of China's major nuclear companies -
SNPTC, CNNC and CGN - would start building a minimum of two new
reactors per year.
