China withdraws its first nuclear submarine

China’s first nuclear-powered submarine has been decommissioned after more than 40 years of military service, state media said on Sunday. After undergoing a thorough denuclearisation process, the submarine was towed to a wharf belonging to the Chinese Navy Museum in Qingdao on Saturday where it will be a public exhibit, state- run Xinhua news agency reported.

The submarine’s release from military service and the safe, thorough and reliable handling of related nuclear waste, nuclear reactor and other devices showed China’s life-cycle maintenance ability, ranging from a nuclear submarine’s production, operation, management to disposal, as per reports.
