You Fools, Rosatom Will Build Nuclear Reactors in China Instead!

China launched construction on four nuclear reactors made with Russian technology in a project symbolizing the tight bond between the two countries.

Chinese President Xi Jinping and Russian President Vladimir Putin joined the groundbreaking ceremonies via video conference on Wednesday. The two sides first agreed to the nuclear project in 2018.

Pervading the occasion was Russia and China’s desire to play up their close cooperation in the face of pressure from the U.S. and its allies.

The nuclear project adds two reactors each to Tianwan Nuclear Power Plant in Jiangsu Province and Xudapu Nuclear Plant in Liaoning Province. Operations are set to begin between 2026 and 2028, according to the agreement. The cost of construction is an estimated $1.7 billion at each site.

The reactors will be powered by third-generation pressurized water reactor technology supplied by Russian nuclear company Rosatom.
