A reactor at Taishan Nuclear Power Plant in southern China's Guangdong province has been shut down because of fuel rod damages, the company that runs the plant said in a statement on Friday.
State-owned China General Nuclear Power Group (CGN) said in the statement that "a small amount of fuel damage" had occurred during operation, but it's still "within the limits allowed by the technical specifications."
It added that "after thorough discussions between French and Chinese technicians, Taishan Nuclear Power Plant decided to shut down Unit 1 reactor for maintenance, and to examine the reasons of fuel damage ....

Hell, if we are willing to accept their explanations about the Wuhan virus, I guess that’s good enough.
french wanted to shut it down right away
chinese wanted to keep it running
- China uses cheap/slave labor to undercut their competitors and make the stolen technology more profitable
- China doesn't create anything on its own. They are not a nation of inventors or innovators. Again, everything they utilize HAS BEEN STOLEN from America or other Western nations
How do you damage a fuel rod in operation other than by overheating it? And if that’s the case, when did they try to Chernobyl the reactor?
wait, that reminds me of something said about Wuhan...oh yeah.
and so does this:
” This shutdown came one month after China’s government declared the damage to its new plant’s fuel rods, but it assuaged concern by saying this was a “common” issue, not worthy of world-historical concern, according to a BBC report.”
The good thing is that there is no way to hide a nuclear disaster.
Aren’t the chicoms in charge of the US power grid? Uh, oh.
It seems like there’s few ways to damage a fuel rod. Maybe it could be something mechanical to the system? Otherwise, yeah, overheating is the obvious culprit.
They are not a nation of inventors or innovators.
Just show how far the Chinese people have fallen from when they had their traditional culture to the Maoist revolution which destroyed all things Chinese.
Before Mao, the Chinese invented and discovered many, many things we take for granted today; the list is very long, so I provide a link to the list.
Communist China = children with nukes
Communist China = the CCP’s Central Committee of mass murderers emboldened by Xi Jinping.
Most of Chinese hate the CCP and its organs, but they have no say - Xi’s crackdown aims to keep it that way.
Coming soon to the Biden/Harris Administration.
“Maintenance”, yeah OK, whatever you say. Clean Up! Aisle 9.
They tried pushing the plant beyond the French design spec and oops.
They’ll try to run with the same when the red button “accidentally” gets pushed.
