Electric Light & Power, Joe McDonald: The ruling party's latest five-year development plan calls for China to have 58 gigawatts of nuclear generating capacity by 2020 and another 30 gigawatts under construction. By 2030, it wants 120 to 150 gigawatts of nuclear capacity supplying 8 to 10 percent of China's power. Westinghouse transferred technology for its latest reactor, the AP1000, to China's State Nuclear Power Technology Corp. in 2007. Westinghouse and China's State Power Investment Corp. are working together to export nuclear power around the world.
Gary Young, mechanical engineer, major product development manager - Before retirement, he worked on product development that significantly contributed to profitability of a global technology company. In this series of articles titled "A Galactic Visitor's Essay," he uses a fictional galactic visitor to let his outstanding technical knowledge and practical experience describe important new ways to use existing nuclear power technologies that can solve many problems existing today in nuclear power and energy needs in general. It is meant to be fun reading for the informed general public, students, and government leadership.
Bruno Comby, ingénieur nucléaire, nuclear engineer: L’EPR est le moyen de production d’électricité à la fois le plus puissant (1600 MW), le plus avancé (haute technologie), le plus écologique (pas de rejets atmosphériques, nécessitant le moins de matériaux de construction par kWh), le plus durable (60 à 80 ans), le plus performant au monde (production à pleine puissance plus de 90% du temps). The EPR is the means of electricity production more powerful (1600 MW) , most advanced ( high-tech ), most environmentally friendly ( no air emissions, requiring less per kWh construction materials), most durable ( 60-80 years), most efficient in the world (at full power output over 90% of the time).
