BEIJING, September 28. /TASS/. Russia's Rosatom state atomic energy corporation has offered China to continue construction of 5th and 6th power units at the Tianwan Nuclear Power Plant (NPP) in the Jiangsu province with use of Russian technologies, head of the corporation’s department in China Viktor Godin told journalists on Monady.
"The 5th and 6th power units have been frozen for more than four years already after Fukushima. We offer Chinese colleagues to finish them together, using more advanced reactors," Godin said. "The thing is that the Chinese side and Chinese corporation CNNC have invested funds into construction of 5th and 6th units. A pit has been dug there, concrete works have been carried out as well," he added.
"[The Chinese side] probably has to make a decision on what is best - to finish construction by themselves, if they have reliable technologies of the third generation, because only technologies of the third generation are allowed to be used in China. Or, they can continue cooperation with us, with technologies that our Chinese colleagues know very well," Godin noted.
"We will see what decision China will make, and this decision will be made by the Chinese government," he concluded.
China froze construction of 5th and 6th power units at the Tianwan NPP after Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster in Japan in March 2011. Initially, CNP-1000 nuclear reactors were planned to be used in construction.
Rosatom participated in construction of 1st and 2nd power units at the Tianwan NPP. The 3rd and 4th power units are currently being constructed with WWER-1000 reactors.
