BEIJING: China has begun testing of its indigenously built 1000 mw nuclear reactors as part of the country's ambitious plan to increase electricity generation and use of non-fossil-fuel energy.
The testing of the pressurized nuclear reactors started at Fangchenggang in Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, the first nuclear power plant built outside China's east coast.
The project, which began in 2010 in South China has now entered a 168-hour test period under full power to assess its readiness for commercial operation, the China National Radio (CNR) reported.
The project, co-established by China General Nuclear Power Group (CGN) with Guangxi Investment Group Co Ltd, included construction of two pressurized-water reactors using independently developed technology in its first phase.
Each of the reactors will have an installed capacity of 1,080 megawatts of electricity.
China is aggressively marketing its 1000 mw nuclear technology. Pakistan, Argentina and recently Britain opted for new Chinese nuclear reactors.
Chinese Nuclear reactors without verifiable safety may pose dangers to the world.

Whatever the world may say, China will go ahead. With even UK opting for Chinese reactors, it will lay to rest ant doubts on safety as well.

It is virtually impossible to buy even a China battery cell that works for more than a few days without leaking.I pity the countries trying to buy Chinese nuclear energy plants.Brace themselves for massive radiation related deaths and diseases.
Capitalist China is a developed country & is rearing to challenge imperialist USA!
China.. Its not a sleeping dragon anymore. I hope we catch up with these guys in the next 50 years.
A world dominated by USA is much much better than the world where China is supreme!!
