Contention over South China Sea

China’s floating nuclear reactor & the South China Sea controversy

  1. China and Russia perfected the art of developing floating nuclear reactors for use by oil rigs or island communities
  2. But China is facing stiff challenges in ascertaining its autonomy over South China Sea from Vietnam and the Philippines
  3. In July 2016, a UN arbitration panel ruled that Beijing’s claim to most of the sea has no legal basis. China rejected the decision on its part.
  4. Other concerns: South China Sea’s seasonal typhoons and the need of replenishing radioactive fuel
