State-run China General Nuclear Power Corp (CGN), a leading developer of reactors in the country, said on Saturday (Oct 13) a proposed project in Britain was not imperilled by new US rules blocking it from acquiring American technology. CGN and China National Nuclear Corporation (CNNC) are jointly promoting an advanced third-generation reactor known as the Hualong One to overseas clients. CGN aims to deploy the technology at a proposed nuclear project at Bradwell in England. On Thursday, amid growing trade tensions, the US Department of Energy said it was tightening controls on exports to China of civil nuclear technology to prevent use for military or other unauthorised purposes.
