LONDON, Sept 15 China General Nuclear Power Corp
(CGN) will submit a design proposal for a nuclear reactor it
wants to build at Bradwell to British authorities "pretty soon",
a source familiar with the situation said on Thursday.
The source was speaking after the British government gave
the green light for French utility EDF to build a new
nuclear plant at Hinkley, in southwest England, with an $8
billion investment from CGN.
"They can now invest in Hinkley and proceed with the
development of Bradwell, the first act of which will be to
formally submit the design of the reactor and the station to the
UK nuclear regulatory process so they can get design approval
for it," the source said.
Asked about the timing around the submission, the source
replied: "It will be pretty soon."
