Westinghouse to Help China Develop Nuclear Reactor

Westinghouse Electric Co., a unit of Toshiba Corp., will help a Chinese nuclear technology developer build a new type of reactor to meet rising demand for atomic power in the world’s fastest-growing major economy.

State Nuclear Power Technology Corp. plans to develop two CAP 1400 reactors that will be based on Westinghouse’s existing AP 1000 design, Guo Hongbo, director of general office at the state-controlled company, said in an interview in Beijing today.
