The hottest nuclear power restart in China has tak

China's nuclear power restart has taken substantial steps

after nearly two years of stagnation, China's nuclear power development has made new progress. Yesterday, Fujian Ningde nuclear power station phase I unit 1 was officially put into commercial operation, which is China's first nuclear power base put into operation after the Fukushima nuclear accident in Japan

it is understood that Ningde nuclear power station is located in Beiwan village, Taimu mountain town, Fuding City, Ningde, Fujian Province. The first phase of the project is jointly invested by China Guangdong Nuclear Power Group, Datang Group and Fujian provincial energy group to build four nuclear power units with a single unit capacity of 1.089 million kW. There are dozens of large plastic markets in total, with a cost of more than 52 billion yuan. The commissioning of Ningde nuclear power plant marks the growth of nuclear power installed capacity, which has been stagnant for a long time. Substantial progress has been made in the restart of nuclear power, and nuclear power development is expected to achieve steady growth in the future. Said linboqiang, director of the China Energy Economy Research Center at Xiamen University

in fact, since the Fukushima nuclear accident, which requires the sharing platform of big data, occurred on August, 2011, countries around the world have been calmly observing and evaluating the impact of the accident. Since then, China has conducted a comprehensive safety inspection of nuclear facilities, and suspended the approval of nuclear power projects before the approval of nuclear safety plans, including projects that have carried out preliminary work. With the suspension of many nuclear power approvals, the development of domestic nuclear power is basically at a standstill. According to the data previously released by the Electricity Regulatory Commission, the installed capacity of nuclear power in China was 12.57 million kW in 2012, with a year-on-year zero growth. On October 24, 2012, the executive meeting of the State Council discussed and approved the nuclear power safety plan (year) and the medium and long term development plan for nuclear power (year), which means that China's nuclear power construction, which was suspended due to the Fukushima nuclear accident in Japan, has officially restarted

Lin Boqiang said that the Fukushima nuclear accident caused everyone's concern about nuclear safety. The approval of domestic nuclear power projects was suspended and safety inspections were carried out, mainly from the perspective of public safety, but the built or approved projects of nuclear power construction were not canceled, and the direction of China's development of nuclear power remained unchanged. However, the state has made it clear that safety will become an important prerequisite for the development of nuclear power. Therefore, inland nuclear power projects will no longer be arranged during the 12th Five Year Plan period. At the same time, new nuclear power units must meet the third generation safety standards

he Zuoxiu, an academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, believes that at present, China has 15 nuclear power plants in operation and 26 nuclear power plants under construction, which are concentrated in coastal areas, of which the coastal space is limited. The construction of nuclear power plants only in coastal areas has slowed down the development of nuclear power to a certain extent. In the future, nuclear power will basically bid farewell to the era of the great leap forward and turn to a more stable development. In Lin Boqiang's view, due to the approval of some nuclear power projects before, nuclear power is expected to maintain rapid growth in the past two years, but in the long run, compared with wind power and optoelectronics, the growth of nuclear power will be relatively slow, and its role in the overall energy structure adjustment will also be greatly reduced
