Updated: 2005-04-18 14:39

China has begun work on a Chinese-made nuclear power project in Sanmen County of East China's Zhejiang Province.

Experts say the first phase of the project will involve the construction of two sets of 1,000-megawatt pressure-tube reactors.

China will also invite tenders for the reactor technology from international companies. In this way can China absorb and improve its own nuclear power technology.

So far, bids from the United States, Russia and France have been submitted for appraisal.

The first phase of the nuclear power station shall, as planned, come into commercial operation around 2012.
