I remember when Westinghouse was an American company!
By the end of the year, Chinese companies will begin international marketing of a 1,400 megawatt power reactor based largely on the Westinghouse AP1000.
In return for the right to sell the AP1000 in China, Westinghouse agreed to help Chinese firms use its generation III pressurized water reactor as a template to develop domestic Chinese designs. One is the CAP1400, which is slated for construction in Rongcheng this year. State Nuclear Power Technology Co. President Gu Jun announced Friday that the coming months would also see the beginning of efforts to export the CAP1400, People's Daily reported.
The marketing will take place in cooperation with Westinghouse, according to the Communist Party newspaper, and the Pennsylvania-based Toshiba subsidiary might also generate business from sales of CAP1400s abroad. In the same press conference, SNPC Chairman Wang Binghua also announced that development of a larger reactor called the CAP1700 would begin this year.
