China plans to build large numbers of the CAP1400 in China.
China has ‘independent intellectual property rights’ over the design and will explore exporting it to other countries.
Site preparation is well already underway for two demonstration CAP1400 units at Huaneng Group’s Shidaowan site in Shandong province. This site is part of a larger Rongcheng Nuclear Power Industrial Park, at which the prototype HTR-PM (pebble bed) small modular reactor is already under construction. Another 19 of the 210 MWe units could follow.
