Chinese Reactor with Problems

Posted: 26th July 2021

The French power company that co-owns a nuclear plant in China would shut

it down if it could, due to damage to the fuel rods, a spokesperson said—
but the decision is ultimately up to the plant’s Chinese operator. The
spokesperson for Electricite de France (EDF) said on Thursday that while it
was “not an emergency situation” at the Taishan Nuclear Power Plant,
located in China’s southern Guangdong province, it was a “serious situation
that is evolving.” If the reactor was in France, the company would have
shut it down already due to “the procedures and practices in terms of
operating nuclear power plants in France,” the spokesperson said.
