HOUSTON, Nov. 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- POWER magazine today officially announced its list of Top Nuclear Plants for 2014.
Hongyanhe Nuclear Power Plant, Liaoning Province, China
While many nations are pulling back on nuclear power, China is moving swiftly ahead with plants using several different reactor designs. The Hongyanhe plant was the first in the nation's northeast and the first to use China's domestic CPR-1000 design. Construction of Unit 1 was completed in just under six years.
Kudankulam Atomic Power Project, Unit 1, Kudankulam, Tamil Nadu, India
India's largest nuclear power plant took much longer to reach completion than our other nuclear project winner this year, but its achievements—among them, being the first modern reactor to use foreign technology and providing essential baseload power in a nation plagued by coal supply problems—are notable, especially in the range of obstacles this project faced.
