Ling Ao Nuclear Power Plant (岭澳核电站) is located on the Dapeng Peninsula in Longgang District, Shenzhen, Guangdong, China, about 60 km north of Hong Kong, 1 km north of Daya Bay Nuclear Power Plant. It is operated by China Guangdong Nuclear Power Company. The units on site are separated between phase I and phase II.

Reactors[edit]

Ling Ao phase I has two nuclear reactors, 938 MWe PWRs Ling Ao I-1 and I-2, based on the French 900 MWe three cooling loop design, which started commercial operation in 2002 and 2003.[2]

In a Phase II development two CPR-1000 reactors, Ling Ao II-1 and II-2 (alternatively, units 3 and 4), were constructed in conjunction with Areva, based on the French three cooling loop design. Ling Ao II-1, China’s first domestic CPR-1000 nuclear power plant, was first connected to the grid on 15 July 2010,[3] having started criticality testing on 11 June 2010.[4] It started commercial operations on 27 September 2010.[5] Ling Ao II-2 was synchronized to the grid on May 3, 2011, with commercial operation beginning on August 7, 2011.[6]
