Nuclear Power Plants to Improve Emergency Procedures
China is preparing emergency procedures and construction standards that will help improve the quality of their nuclear power plants. These procedures were done just a few months after the devastating earthquake that happened in Japan.
A nuclear safety specialist official of the ministry of environmental protection said that the raised standards will help people deal with any complicated situations that may happen. Nuclear power plants should improve all their emergency procedures, their evacuation plans, especially coordination between government departments.
The plants are also considering putting power generators inside the nuclear plants and flood control measures will be set higher, and construction of external walls that protect reactors will be made thicker. The environmental protection bureau will be aiming to make a complete safety inspection nationwide by August, afterwards they will then issue a new safety plan to the 13 nuclear reactors that are currently operated by China.
