    Russia and China are negotiating the construction of Tianwan Nuclear Power Station's seventh and eighth units as well as fast neutron reactors. Only a few countries possess fast neutron reactor technology, with Russia leading the world in the field.

    VOLGODONSK (Rostov Region), December 26 (Sputnik) — Moscow and Beijing are negotiating the construction of the Tianwan Nuclear Power Station's seventh and eighth units as well as fast neutron reactors, the head of a subsidiary of Russia's Rosatom nuclear giant announced Friday.

    "We are negotiating the construction of Tianwan Nuclear Power Station's seventh and eighth units. [We are also] in talks to construct fast neutron reactors," President of NIAEP (Atomstroyexport) joint-stock Valery Limarenko said Friday.

    Only a few countries possess fast neutron reactor technology, with Russia leading the world in the field. The Beloyarsk Nuclear Power Station is currently preparing to launch the BN-800 fast reactor.

    The advanced-design Tianwan Nuclear Power Station was constructed by the Russian Atomstroyexport nuclear service and equipment giant. According to International Atomic Energy Agency's (IAEA) experts, it is among the world's safest operational nuclear power plants.

    Tianwan's first and second reactors were launched in 2007.
