China to choose one each from Areva and Westinghouse

23 November 2005

Plans to build two Generation III nuclear reactors at each of two sites in China have reportedly been abandoned.

Instead, China is expected to order just one reactor at each site initially, one from Areva of France and one from UK-owned Westinghouse Electric. According to media reports, Areva would build an EPR reactor in Sanmen, in the coastal province of Zhejiang, and Westinghouse would build its AP1000 reactor in Yangjiang, in Guangdong, near Hong Kong.
