BEIJING, June 5 (Itar-Tass) — Russia will start construction work at the sites of what will become the third and fourth reactors of China’s Tianwan nuclear power plant by the end of this year. In all, up to eight reactors will be built there, the head of the Rosatom corporation, Sergei Kiriyenko, told the media on Tuesday.
“At the end of 2012 the first portion of concrete will be poured into the basement of the third and fourth reactors,” Kiriyenko said, adding that this area may house not four, but six and probably eight reactors.
“We are beginning work with our partners at the level of the customer company. We are beginning to draft such a decision,” he said.
