- This was followed after a long preamble by the signing in July 2014 of a binding and exclusive cooperation agreement between the China Nuclear Power Engineering Company China General Nuclear and the Canadian company Canada Deuterium Uranium for the construction of two more reactors at the Cernavoda nuclear plant.
