But the Chinese have fully understood the importance of the safety of populations. They have cheap coal, but they still invest in nuclear power without economic necessity. Why? Because they know how much coal damages and kills health: around 500 Chinese people die from it each year.
How many Chernobyl to achieve this result?
One of the reasons for developing nuclear power in China is precisely the safety of populations, since, including accidents, nuclear energy is one of the least dangerous energies, extremely less dangerous than coal.

Should we go and demonstrate in front of the Chinese embassy so that it closes all its nuclear projects?
Or should we congratulate China for reducing its CO2 emissions, its deadly pollution, by replacing coal with nuclear?

The Emirates reactor 1 is connected to the grid.

Arab World's First Nuclear Plant Now On The Grid

By Tsvetana Paraskova - Aug 19, 2020

The Arab World's first nuclear power plant has been connected to the grid of the United Arab Emirates (UAE), the Emirates Nuclear Energy Corporation (ENEC) said on Wednesday, two weeks after the corporation had successfully started up the nuclear plant.

With the start-up of Unit 1 of the Barakah Nuclear Energy Plant in Abu Dhabi, the UAE became the first country in the Arab world, and the 33rd nation globally, to develop a nuclear energy plant to generate electricity, helping the oil-rich emirates to move towards electrification of its energy sector and decarbonization of its electricity production, ENEC said earlier this month.

The unit was safely and successfully connected to the UAE grid, after it was integrated and synchronized with the requirements of the UAE's national electricity transmission grid, ENEC said today.

You justify the Chinese choice by compatibilizing / adding the dead to the dead. You are in the blindness of the economic problem which in itself justifies all the bad choices / alternatives cans more toxic than the others for the health and life of the population.
To limit the "damage" of the population (of our biotope in general), one of the most "reasonable" solutions would be to first drastically and quickly limit our consumption of carbonated energy, nuke etc ... Counting the dead does not that distracts attention from the real problems, our society does not know / do not want, yet to do without orgies of energy wastage.

First nuclear power station under construction in Turkey, Russia sends the first steam generator.
The beast weighs 355 tons.

Russia ships steam generators for Turkey's 1st nuclear power plant

BY ANADOLU AGENCYAUG 24, 2020

The shipment of steam generators for the first unit of the Akkuyu Nuclear Power Plant (NPP) is on the way, the reactor's manufacturer Atomenergomash announced Monday.

shipment of steam generators for the first unit of the Akkuyu Nuclear Power Plant (NPP) is on the way, the reactor's manufacturer Atomenergomash announced Monday.

Atommash, the Volgodonsk branch of AEM-technology, which operates alongside Russian State Atomic Energy Corporation's (Rosatom) machine-building division of Atomenergomash, has completed the loading process of the four steam generators.

According to a company statement, the generators, weighing 355 tons each, will go on a long voyage soon, sailing 3,000 kilometers en route to the Akkuyu NPP construction site in Mersin, southern Turkey.

"Delivery of products from Atommash to the customer is carried out in a combined way," the statement read.

First, the products will be delivered by road to the port of the Tsimlyansk reservoir in southern Russia's Rostov Oblast. The four steam generators will then be loaded onto a barge using a 650-ton gantry crane and shipped to Turkey.

An intergovernmental agreement between Turkey and Russia was signed in May 2010 for the Akkuyu NPP, which will house four VVER-1200 power units with a total installed capacity of 4,800 megawatts.

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin presided over the plant's groundbreaking ceremony held on April 3, 2018, via videoconference.

The first reactor of the plant is planned to go online in 2023.

Steam is good for engines :P

2 new nuclear power plant projects approved.

China cabinet approves two nuclear power projects: state media

SHANGHAI (Reuters) 22 Sep 2022

China's cabinet approved two nuclear power projects, according to state radio on Wednesday evening, quoting the country's cabinet meeting.

The approved projects were Hainan Changjiang nuclear power plant phase 2 and Zhejiang San'ao nuclear power plant phase 1, according to state radio.

China last year launched three new nuclear power plants in the provinces of Shandong, Fujian and Guangdong, which marked the end of a moratorium on new projects.

China's nuclear association said the country will build six to eight nuclear reactors a year between 2020 and 2025 and raise total capacity to 70 gigawatts (GW), up 43.5% from end-May, according to the official China Daily in July.

The association was also quoted as saying China's total installed nuclear capacity is expected to stand at 52 GW by the end of 2020, falling short of an initial 58 GW target, but would soon get back on track to bring total capacity either in operation or under construction to around 200 GW by 2035.
