Cou­ples go nu­clear with wed­ding photos

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - CHINA -

SHEN­ZHEN — Thirty cou­ples were in­vited to get free wed­ding photos on Mon­day at China’s largest nu­clear power base, ac­cord­ing to the par­ent com­pany, China Gen­eral Nu­clear Power Corp.

The cou­ples were cho­sen from nearly 3,000 pairs na­tion­wide who ap­plied for wed­ding pho­tog­ra­phy at the Daya Bay plant. Mon­day marked the 30th an­niver­sary of the plant’s ground­break­ing.

They also vis­ited the re­ac­tor’s cut­ting-edge neu­trino ex­per­i­men­tal sta­tion.

The two-day visit was part of a three-month CGN pro­mo­tion show­ing the base’s scenery and in­tro­duc­ing peo­ple to nu­clear power.

CGN said it would re­ceive 100 cou­ples for wed­ding pho­tog­ra­phy ev­ery year from now on.

Data from the Min­istry of En­vi­ron­men­tal Pro­tec­tion showed that ra­di­a­tion lev­els and the bi­o­log­i­cal com­po­si­tion within a 10-kilo­me­ter ra­dius of the plant have not changed in 30 years.

As of Mon­day, nearly cou­ples 600,000 peo­ple had vis­ited the base since it be­gan its pub­lic open days in 2013.

CGN is China’s largest nu­clear power op­er­a­tor and the largest nu­clear power builder world­wide. It fo­cuses on the devel­op­ment of clean en­ergy, such as nu­clear power, nu­clear fuel, so­lar power and wind.

Lo­cated in Guang­dong prov­ince, the Daya Bay nu­clear power base has six gen­er­at­ing units from two nu­clear power plants. It can gen­er­ate 45 bil­lion kilo­watt-hours of elec­tric­ity an­nu­ally, sup­ply­ing clean power to Guang­dong and Hong Kong.

ev­ery year will have the chance to have their wed­ding photos taken out­side the Daya Bay nu­clear power plant.
