China National Nuclear Corporation (CNNC), one of the country’s two leading nuclear power companies, is stepping up its overseas cooperation, the chairperson said Saturday. Progress is being made in cooperation with CNNC’s local partners in countries like Pakistan, Argentina, Saudi Arabia, Ghana and the United States, CNNC chairperson Wang Shoujun said on the sidelines of the annual session of the country’s top political advisory body. In 2017, the CNNC completed the construction on the No. 4 unit of the Chashma Nuclear Power Plant in Pakistan. The company also reached an agreement with its Pakistani partner to build another nuclear power unit at the Chashma plant using the Hualong One technology. The total installed capacity of CNNC’s nuclear projects in Pakistan has so far reached 4.63 million kilowatts while the installed capacity in operation has exceeded 1.3 million kilowatts, said Wang, who is also a member of the 13th National Committee of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC).
