Los Angeles, CA – (NewMediaWire) – January 21, 2020 – US Nuclear Corp. (OTC: UCLE) has signed a “Cooperation Agreement” with Dalian Zhonghe Scientific and Technological Development Co., a subsidiary of China National Nuclear Corporation (CNNC), to design, build, and mass produce radiation detectors and systems for the growing China nuclear market.
China is the world’s major builder of nuclear power plants, with 46 in operation, 15 under construction, and around 200 planned. Each nuclear power plant requires about $8 million worth of radiation detection equipment. Currently, around 80% of that radiation detection equipment is imported into China at a steep cost. Importing is not favorable due to the high cost and because functionality has been customized for the country of origin and does not always fit local procedures, regulations, and language. US Nuclear aims to solve this problem.
Under this new cooperation agreement, US Nuclear will work with Dalian Zhonghe to design the perfect radiation detection systems for use in Chinese Nuclear Power Plants. These systems are planned to be built at a factory in China to be cost-competitive. Furthermore, this factory will be a new trading partner for US Nuclear, buying sub-assemblies and helping with any required exports to China.
CNNC is the most important player in China’s applied nuclear technology field and is also the earliest company that can design, engineer, and manufacture such products. Furthermore, CNNC is affiliated with China Isotope and Radiation Corporation (CIRC), the biggest nuclear medicine manufacturer in China. The CIRC can be an excellent customer for US Nuclear and MIFTEC’s medical isotope generator business.
