Power plant operations safe

Secretary for Security John Lee today said Taishan Nuclear Power Station is operating within nuclear power safety requirements and that the release of operational information complies with international standards.   Having maintained close contact with Guangdong's Nuclear Emergency Committee Office as well as the National Nuclear Safety Administration, Mr Lee made it clear the power plant is safe.   “We have been given the information that the operation of the Taishan nuclear plant is safe and there is no indication of any effect on the environment. So it is operating within all the requirements regarding nuclear power safety.   “All the information that is released will be in accordance with the international standard.”   He added that only two incidents occurred at Taishan Nuclear Power Station this year, both of which were classified as Level 0 events that did not affect the unit’s safe operation, workers’ health, the nearby communities or the environment.   “In other words, they do not affect, in any way, nuclear safety,” Mr Lee stressed.
