MOSCOW, November 21. /TASS/. China is planning to expand possibilities of nuclear technology export, nuclear expert and dean of the School of Energy Research at China’s Xiamen University Li Ning said on Friday.
“By 2020, our nuclear power plants should correspond to the highest international standards of physical safety. We should create nuclear technology with the low level risk, particularly taking into account the disaster at the Fukushima power plant,” he said.
“China is the country that works hard in nuclear energy. At the end of 2015, we intend to demonstrate new technology in building nuclear reactors. In addition, China has broad opportunities of nuclear technology export,” Li Ning said.
At present, China has 20 operating reactors while 28 reactors are being built. Totally, 40% of the construction in this sphere on the world market accounts for China, he said.
