China Plans To Build Floating Nuclear Power Plant In South China Sea Islands

China announced that it will construct a fleet of 20 nuclear power plants over hotly disputed waters in South China Sea.

These power plants will provide electricity to offshore drilling rigs, as well as with its man-made tourist paradises of the South China Sea that has already filled with airstrips, vegetable gardens and lovely ladies with clarinets.

As part of China’s Five Year plan, the country’s first floating power plant will be ready to go by 2020.

Floating power plants have actually been used particularly by Russia in providing them power to remote locations around the Arctic circle.

US Navy have been operating over a hundreds of nuclear-powered vessels with a virtually spotless track record. Beijing doesn’t seem to worried about the idea, they have ordered 19 more plants just three months later.

“The Chinese have been operating nuclear-powered submarines for a number of years. It’s not a big leap to modify those power plants into electricity generators,” Rod Adams, an expert on nuclear technology, told The Washington Post.

Despite protests from its neighboring nations,
China has built more than 3,000 acres of new territory on seven reefs in only 2 years.
However, a case brought by the Philippines to the United Nations challenged China’s nine-dash line claim on South China Sea due for a ruling in the next months.
To strengthen its claim, China gathered up a coalition of nations that supports its position including Laos, Cambodia, Brunei and Gambia.
