Nextbigfuture – Construction of three new Chinese reactors has begun, since the country’s announcement in October that it would approve only a ‘small number’ of nuclear projects in each of the coming five years. First concrete has now been poured for Fuqing unit 4 in Fujian province and Yangjiang unit 4 in Guangdong province – both 1080 MWe CPR-1000 units.
