Nov. 17 (Bloomberg) -- China has completed safety checks on its nuclear plants and submitted the results to the State Council, according to Xu Yuming, the China Nuclear Energy Association’s vice secretary general. Inspectors concluded that China’s atomic power plants are not exposed to conditions that may lead to accidents similar to that at Fukushima in Japan, Xu said in Beijing today.
China won’t be able to maintain its previous pace of nuclear-plant construction through 2015, Xu said. The country started work on an average eight new reactors a year from 2008 to 2010, he said.
