Pakistan: PAEC Close to Concluding Chashma Talks With CNNC

Pakistan is close to concluding contract negotiations for a third Hualong-One reactor from China National Nuclear Corp. (CNNC), but with the country awash in excess power supply and a second Hualong-One at Karachi expected on line next year, it's unclear when work on this third pressurized water reactor at Chashma might begin. It's already evident that Islamabad's long-standing aim of achieving 8.8 gigawatts of nuclear capacity by 2030 — up from 2.3 GW of net capacity today — will not be met.

Iran nuclear talks resume today in Vienna; Canada's Bruce Power raises C$500 million in a novel green bond for nuclear investments; and Romanian operator Nuclearelectrica signs a C$8.4 million contract with SNC-Lavalin subsidiary Candu Energy for "engineering services" related to updating numerous documents needed to restart work on the long-stranded Cernavoda-3 and -4.
