Canada's SNC-Lavalin and China Nuclear Power Engineering Company announced a deal Friday to build two nuclear reactors in Romania.
The Candu reactors will be built at the Cernavoda Nuclear Power Plant in Romania, which already houses two of the Canadian-designed power plants that produce nearly 20 percent of Romania's electricity supply, according to a statement.
The pair came into service in 1996 and 2007, respectively.
"Candu Energy looks forward to working with CNPEC to meet Romania's growing nuclear energy requirements," said Preston Swafford, president of SNC-Lavalin subsidiary Candu Energy.
加拿大SNC-兰万灵集团子公司坎杜能源（Candu Energy)总裁斯沃福（Preston Swafford）说： “坎杜集团期待和中广核（CNPEC）合作解决罗马尼亚日益增加的核能需求”。
"Today's agreement deepens our strong ties with both the Romanian and Chinese nuclear industries, as Candu reactors have operated in both countries for more than a decade."
SNC-Lavalin, Canada's largest engineering company, bought Atomic Energy of Canada Limited's Candu sales and servicing division in 2011.
The company and CNPEC also signed a formal memorandum of understanding this week to collaborate on uranium mining projects in China and to jointly pursue other reactor sales opportunities.
If Canada let China build nuclear power plant next to US, humm what would be happen? No thanks much "made in China" products.
The design of the Canadian reactors is one of the best, they are cheap and safe.
Yeah good luck with those Chinese modifications to the designs. Once all the graft and payoffs are out of the way I am sure that cheaper concrete and other materials wont affect the design at all.
"Made in China?"
In big letters on the side of the reactors, it says MADE IN CHINA---LOL I wouldn't go over there after it's built
反应堆上写着的大字：中国制造 --- 笑嘻嘻，造好后我是不会去那的了。
hope china don't screw them like they screwed 1000's of new homeowners here with that sheetrock that caused all copper and metal to rot and they never made good on it except for one smaller company
Hopefully the Canadians are the ones to build them.
Why not it will all be Russia/China soon anyway!
not a good idea
I wouldn't mind for Canada but China coming in Romania ?no thanks .Romania had enough of communist deals so far ,hope this president of Romania would not go along with this stupid plan.
China and Canada are okay. I try never to buy anything American unless I have to. All that cheap junk at Walmart is by American companies.
Going to be a mess.. :0(
We need to get the Nuclear Industry going again in the United States.
Nothing else will do.
I might just seek Chinese citizenship; if you cannot beat them, join them! I am so fed up at how naïve the West is towards China! Truly, the United States, NATO, and the West are idiots! Isn't Canada, and Romania NATO members???????
What are we doing helping China to expand its economic reach? We truly deserve to be defeated! We are blind!!
You would think after Japan they would reconsider.
I thought we are smarter than this? Why China when we know they will attempt to steal our technology with straight face and compete against us shamelessly?
Fortune Favors The Trolls
China and Canada had 0 nuclear accidents. They are probably better at building and maintaining nuclear plants than us, the Russians, or the Japanese, who had 3 miles, Chernobyl, and Fukishima.
