China wants 100 Westinghouse reactors - Pittsburgh Tribune-Review: "China wants to have 100 of Westinghouse Electric Co.'s nuclear reactors in operation or under construction by 2020 -- more than double what was anticipated, according to the company's incoming CEO.
Aris Candris, who will lead the Monroeville-based firm beginning Tuesday, said Chinese officials shared those plans with Westinghouse during a mid-May meeting.

'It is huge,' Candris said in an interview Thursday with the Tribune-Review. 'Originally we were thinking somewhere around 40.'
