France's Areva to equip four Chinese nuclear reactors
French nuclear firm Areva said Monday its consortium with a Chinese energy company will supply safety systems for four new nuclear reactors in China.
Areva and the China Nuclear Power Technology Research Institute, which make up the BRIC consortium created in 2011, clinched the deal, worth an undisclosed amount, with China Nuclear Power Engineering, the French firm said.
The deal concerns reactors under construction at the Yangjiang nuclear plant in southern Guangdong province and the Hongyanhe facility in northeastern Liaoning.
"A key element in the performance and safety of every nuclear power plant, the incore instrumentation system measures the neutron fluxes and the temperature in the core of the reactor," Areva said in a statement.
