China Orders Two More Nuclear Plants

China has given the French state-run company Areva a $5 billion deal to build two nuclear power plants in southern Guangdong Province by 2013.

Beijing awarded contracts for four reactors to the American-based Westinghouse Electric, now owned by Toshiba of Japan in 2006.

China now has a total of 6 plants ordered for construction.
