Fangchenggang Nuclear Power Plant is a nuclear power plant under construction in Fangchenggang, autonomous region of Guangxi (Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region) of the People's Republic of China. The construction of the first reactor at Phase 1 started on July 30, 2010. Once completed, the first phase will be one of two domestically-developed 1000 MWe CPR-1000 pressurized water reactors. The plant, construction of which was approved by the National Development and Reform Commission earlier in the month, is planned to eventually house six units.

The plant is located about 45 kilometres from the border with Vietnam. It is a project of Guangxi Fangchenggang Nuclear Power Group, a joint venture between China Guangdong Nuclear Power Co (CGNPC) and Guangxi Investment Group.[1]
