BEIJING—Exelon Corp. said on Friday it reached a deal to provide consulting and training services to an arm of state-owned China National Nuclear Corp.

In a press release, the Chicago-based company said that senior Exelon instructors will be stationed at Qinshan Nuclear Power Station in China's Zhejiang province.

The agreement "can only strengthen our current focus on safe, reliable and efficient nuclear-power operations at all CNNC facilities and prepare us for the future expansion of nuclear power in China," said He Xiaojian, general manager of the CNNC unit, according to the statement.

China plans a major expansion of nuclear power in coming years to meet its energy needs, but some critics say it needs to put a greater emphasis on safety.

China will be saying the same, when they take over the U.S.

What company lead the safety planning at Fukushima?
