ABU DHABI, Oct 31 (Reuters) – Argentina plans to start building two new nuclear reactors next year, a government official said on Tuesday.
The South American country already generates about 5 percent of its electricity with three heavy water nuclear reactors, two German-built and one Canadian, with combined capacity of 1,600 megawatts (MW).
A new Candu reactor with capacity of 720 MW will be built by Canadian company SNC-Lavalin’s Candu Energy unit and Argentina state nuclear company NASA. A second project is for a 1,150 MW Hualong One reactor to be built by China National Nuclear Corp (CNNC).
