There are 15 operational commercial nuclear reactors in China, which has ambitious plans to expand its nuclear industry, with 27 reactors under construction near coastal areas, according to the World Nuclear Association.

Construction on the coastal Shidao Bay nuclear plant in Rongcheng, a city in eastern China's Shandong province, resumed last month, the state-run China Internet Information Center reported, adding that the plant is "China's biggest planned nuclear project".
