China-designed UK nuclear reactor plan clears second assessment stage

LONDON, Nov 15 (Reuters) - The first Chinese-designed atomic reactor for use in Britain moved a step closer to fruition on Thursday as the UK nuclear regulator said it had completed the second stage of its assessment of the technology.

General Nuclear Services, an industrial partnership between China General Nuclear Power Corp (CGN) IPO-CGNP.HK and French utility EDF, hopes to use the design at a nuclear plant planned to be built in Essex, eastern England. (Reporting by Susanna Twidale; Editing by Adrian Croft)
