(07-28 13:12)

China is considering to build the first nuclear power plant on the tropical island of Hainan, as the country struggles with power shortages and aims to expand nuclear power use and reduce its heavy reliance on dirty coal.

China National Nuclear Corp or CNNC, the country's top nuclear power developer and operator, said it has won approval from the National Development and Reform Commission to conduct a study of the proposed Changjiang nuclear project.

The project in Changjiang county of Hainan province would consist of two pressurized water reactors, with capacity of 650 megawatts each, with more than 70 percent of its equipment to be made in China, CNNC said.
