So it is operating within all the requirements regarding nuclear power safety.   “All the information that is released will be in accordance with the international standard.”   He added that only two incidents occurred at Taishan Nuclear Power Station this year, both of which were classified as Level 0 events that did not affect the unit’s safe operation, workers’ health, the nearby communities or the environment.   “In other words, they do not affect, in any way, nuclear safety,” Mr Lee stressed.
