The two state-owned electricity generation giants yesterday signed a framework agreement for the construction of the new nuclear facility, which could house as many as six 1,000-megawatt (MW) reactors. The new nuclear plant will be located in Hui'an, in the southeast part of the province near Quanzhou.



Meanwhile, China Guangdong Nuclear Power Holding Co. Ltd., have signed a cooperation agreement on another nuclear power plant with the Shaoguan municipal government.

The project's power generating capacity is unknown but costs have been put at 100 billion yuan (US$12.5 billion) with an estimated production value of 10 billion yuan (US$1.25 billion), said Xu Jianhua, mayor of Shaoguan.

China plans to build as many as 32 more nuclear reactors within the next 15 years supplying six percent of the country's power demand -- it currently sits at two percent.

According to Newsweek,
At present, the US has the most number of nuclear power plants (104) but they generate only 20% of its energy needs. France has 59, generating 78% of its needs. The other nuclear countries are: Japan (56 - 30%); Russia (31 - 16%); the UK (23 - 19%); South Korea (20 - 38%); Canada (18 - 15%); Germany (17 - 32%); India (15 - 3%); and China (9 - 2%).
