[article published 14.06.2021 at 10:36 updated at 11:45 with EDF communiqué China had won the battle of the world opening of the first EPR in Taishan in 2018, in front of Flamanville (France), Olkiluoto (Finland), Hinkley Point (United Kingdom), Jaitapur (India).

A project conducted drumming by the Chinese energy CGN who holds 70% of the shares of the joint venture TNPJVC with French EDF (30%). The French energetician, inventor of this nuclear technology, also participated in the construction of the second Chinese EPR in Taishan, launched in 2019.

These two reactors of Taishan are currently the only EPR entered into service in the world, EDF having thus picked up all its older projects under development around the world.

This is Taishan's N ° 1 reactor which is currently under the lights of the news in this possible radioactive incident.

possible radioactive leakage in radiation limits "acceptable"

Framatome, a subsidiary of the French group EDF, announced Monday monitoring "the evolution of one of the operating parameters" of the nuclear power plant in Taishan, in southern China , after CNN reported a possible radioactive leak on the site.

The plant "is in its authorized operating and safety field", specifies in a statement to the AFP Framatome which participated in the construction of the plant.

Nuclear: China starts the first EPR in the world

(2018) CNN, on the basis of a letter sent by Framatome to the American Energy Department, has reported a possible "leak" In this plant, which has two EPR reactors of French technology, built by EDF.

researchers warn against a turnaround at nuclear weapons

 researchers warn against a turnaround at nuclear weapons The peace research institute Sipri is worried: the number of atomic explosives go back. Currently, however, more nuclear weapons are ready for use than a year ago, the experts of the institute report.

Always according to the American chain, the Chinese security authorities would also have been raised the acceptable limits of radiation outside the site which allows it to not have to put the station at the stop.

reassuring but limited information

"Framatome supports the analysis of the evolution of one of the operating parameters of the Taishan nuclear power plant," said the French company, without ever talking about leak or say Which of these "parameters" was monitored. "On the basis of the information available, the slice is in its authorized operating and safety field," she added, without further accuracy.

For its part, the operator of the plant, China General Nuclear Power Group (CGN), reported in a statement of "normal" environmental indicators, but not directly refer to CNN information.

"At present, the ongoing monitoring of environmental data shows that the environmental indicators of the Taishan nuclear power plant and its surroundings are normal," said the Chinese group, which did not respond to requests for information AFP.

EDF confirms a sealing problem, under control, on the nuclear reactor of Taishan , in China. The information is strangely from the United States. gas leaks were spotted in the heart of Taishan's # 1 reactor in China.

The Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs has also not responded to the solicitations of AFP.

In France, the government, the Atomic Energy Commission and the Alternative Energy (CEA), the Nuclear Safety Authority (ASN) and EDF had not made a comment at first.

EDF evokes "the presence of rare gas" and expects more information

but EDF published on Monday in the morning a statement indicating that it has been "informed of the increase in the concentration of certain rare gases in the circuit Reactor Primary # 1 of the Taishan Nuclear Power Station ", belonging to and operated by TNPJVC, CGN (70%) and EDF (30%) joint venture.

"The presence of certain rare gases in the primary circuit is a known phenomenon, studied and provided in the operating modes of the reactor. EDF contacted the TNPJVC teams and brings its expertise."

The French energetician also said, in his statement, having asked for an extraordinary meeting of the TNPJVC Board of Directors so that the management "presents all the necessary data and decisions".

In China, the French competing with the Russians

EDF is a shareholder at 30% of the joint venture to build and operate these two reactors of 1,750 MW each. The Chinese groups CGN and Guangdong Energy Group have respective participations of 51% and 19%.

China has about fifty reactors in operation which ranks third in the world behind the United States and France.

Last month, the Russian presidents Vladimir Putin and Chinese Xi Jinping had welcomed the launch of the construction of new reactors in China in partnership with the Russian Rosatom agency.

But this Wednesday, June 23, a nuclear reactor has been restored, respecting the new safety standards imposed by Japan. It had not happened since the Fukushima nuclear disaster.
