Taishan nuclear reactor completion delayed a year

Taishan nuclear power plant EDF CGN China Areva EPR European Pressurized Reactor delay

EDF says the first of two nuclear reactors under construction at a Chinese power project will be completed by the end of 2015.
France-based EDF owns 30 percent of a joint venture with utility China General Nuclear (CGN), which owns 70 percent, of the dual-unit, 3,300-MW Taishan nuclear power project in China. The plant will use European Pressurized Reactors built by Areva. Taishan 1 and 2 were scheduled to begin operations in 2013 and 2014, respectively, but the leader of EDF Asia-Pacific said in Reuters that the completion date was pushed to late 2015 and early 2016 for the reactors.
