“The American Nuclear Society is monitoring the situation at the Taishan reactor site in China. According to Framatome and the plant operator CGN, the plant is operating within established safety parameters.

It is premature to speculate about the exact nature of the situation, but it does underscore the value of international collaboration on nuclear safety issues, consistent with IAEA guidelines.”

ANS has also activated our team of technical experts and communications specialists who monitor nuclear-related events.
