BEIJING: Shanghai-listed steel manufacturer Baosteel won the bid for supplying steel material to Karachi Coastal Power Station, which is the first export deal for the China-designed third-generation nuclear power technology. China has become the fourth country after the US, France and South Korea to independently export third-generation nuclear power technology, according to a Chinese news portal report on Tuesday. Under the Chinese government’s plan for nuclear power, Baosteel has been developing steel for nuclear power plants since 2006. The company’s products are in line with all nuclear safety regulations and have been widely applied in the domestic market, the report claimed. The nuclear power plant in Karachi broke ground in 2015, the report added.
