The construction of the first reactor at Phase 1 of the Fangchenggang nuclear power plant has started in China’s autonomous Guangxi province.
A ceremony was held on 30 July to mark the start of construction of the first of two domestically-developed 1000 MWe CPR-1000 pressurized water reactors, which will form Phase I of the Fangchenggang nuclear power plant. The cost of constructing Phase I is 25 billion yuan ($3.7 billion). Some 87% of the equipment to be used in the Phase I units is expected to be sourced from Chinese suppliers. The first unit is scheduled to begin operating in 2015, while the second will start up in 2016.
The timetable for the construction of the second phase of the Fangchenggang plant has yet to be determined, but it will increase the project’s total investment to nearly 70 billion yuan ($10.4 billion)
