China nuclear reactor program to resume in fourth quarter

Reuters - Shanghai Securities News said China's Ministry of Environmental Protection had already started accelerating the approval process for the nuclear sector. The second phase of the Sino-Russian Tianwan nuclear project in Jiangsu province on the eastern coast was certain to start construction in December.

Before the Fukushima disaster in Japan, Beijing had been expected to set a new 2020 nuclear capacity target of more than 80 gigawatts, but that target is now expected to be scaled back. China's current total nuclear installed capacity stands at 12.57 gigawatts.
