China generates over 62 bln kwh of nuclear power in 2007

 China generated 62.6 billion kilowatt hours of nuclear power in 2007, up 14.1 percent year-on-year, the China Electricity Council, an industry association, said on Wednesday. 



    China has 11 nuclear generating units with a combined installed capacity of 9.08 million kw. Three use domestic technology, two are based on Russian technology, four use French technology and two are Canadian-designed. All use second-generation nuclear technologies. 



    Nuclear plants provide 2.3 percent of China's power and the proportion is planned to rise to 16 percent by 2030. 



    The two Russian-designed units are in Tianwan, Lianyungang, a city in the eastern province of Jiangsu. One began commercial operation in May 2007 and the other started up three months later. 



    The two generated 10.02 billion kwh of electricity last year, or 200 percent of the Tianwan nuclear power station's original annual target. 



    The third-phase project of the Qinshan nuclear power station in eastern Zhejiang Province generated 11.54 billion kwh of electricity last year, accounting for 107 percent of its annual target.
