Russia’s State Nuclear Power Corporation- ROSATOM plans to open a regional centre in China by the middle of the current year.
The China office will be set with an objective to strengthen Rosatom’s position in the Chinese market and will act as a reference point for the further development of Rosatom’s business in the country.
Sergey Demin has been appointed regional vice president of Rusatom International Network for China and Japan.
“The new office will not only coordinate construction of new reactors at the Tianwan NPP site in Jiangsu Province but will also promote products and services offered by the company’s subsidiaries in the Chinese market. It will also help develop closer cooperation with Chinese partners in “non-nuclear activities,” Alexander Merten, president of Rusatom International Network, said in his comments.
Rusatom International Network already has regional offices in the Czech Republic, France, Singapore, South Africa and Ukraine. It has plans to open offices in all the major economic centers in the Middle East, Asia and the Americas.
Rosatom is engaged in construction of third and fourth units of the Tianwan NPP, the largest nuclear power plant in mainland China. First and second units of the project were also constructed by Rosatom and which have been operating since 2007. Russian VVER reactors are being used in all the units. IAEA has referred to the station as the “safest nuclear power plant in the world.” – Triune Group press release
