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.
Chen Kane and Miles Pomper - South Korea hopes to become a major exporter of nuclear plants. Its success in building up its domestic nuclear industry, winning a $20.4 billion contract to build four nuclear power plants in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), building Jordan’s first research reactor, and providing training programs and best practices to nuclear newcomer states indicates that established vendors should take this determination seriously.
