Adjust font size:

A nuclear power plant in east China's Jiangsu Province is in safe condition although a fire occurred in late August in a transformer, company sources said on Thursday.

The transformer in the Tianwan nuclear power plant caught fire at 5:32 p.m. on Aug. 26 due to a short circuit, however, the blaze was immediately extinguished, a plant source said, adding it was just "an ordinary incident".

The National Nuclear Safety Administration carried out an on-the-spot check soon after the incident and then assigned inspectors to Jiangsu Nuclear Power Co. Ltd. for a special inspection of nuclear safety.

No radiation leaked and the plant functioned normally, the inspectors confirmed.

Tianwan nuclear power plant is the largest ever technological and economic cooperation project between China and Russia.
