Capacity growth for nuclear ‘centred in Asia’

Near and long-term capacity growth prospects for the commercial nuclear power industry are centred in Asia, which at the end of 2019 reported some 36.5 GW of nuclear power capacity, or 35 reactors, under construction, the International Atomic Energy Agency has said.

In its nuclear power status data for 2019, the agency said that in 2019, six new pressurised water reactors (PWR) were connected to the grid, resulting in an additional 5,174 MW of nuclear power capacity.

Over 77% of this new capacity was added in Asia and included two reactor units in China at Taishan-2 and Yangjiang-6, and one reactor unit in the South Korea at Shin-Kori-4. In addition, three nuclear power reactor units with a total capacity of 1,174 MW were connected to grid in Russia, including Novovoronezh 2-2 and the world’s first commercial floating nuclear power plant ‘Akademik Lomonosov’, which comprises two units of 30 MW each.
