We know that ecosystem protection is necessary, and we endeavor to reduce the erosion of biodiversity. We exclude areas with high value of biodiversity at the planning and design stage. We endeavor to protect plants and animals in the process of constructing and operating our nuclear plants by means of ecological restoration and investigation of the habitat.
Namibia Husab Uranium Mine
CGN Swakop Uranium Development Company won a local prize for vegetation protection in 2014.
CGN Namibia Husab Uranium Mine attaches great importance to environmental protection. In the process of constructing permanent water pipelines, CGN Swakop Uranium chose an optimal route several times to transplant only three welwitschias, an African plant. One hundred precious welwitschias, the average age of which was over a millennium, were protected in the original construction plan.
CGN also took specific protective measures to protect a local lizard.
CGN Swakop Uranium restored vegetation at the mine. They also delivered some New Zealand grebes to local bird experts after their discovery.
