The CFR-600 is a sodium-cooled pool-type fast-neutron nuclear reactor under construction in Xiapu County, Fujian province, China, on Changbiao Island. It is a generation IV demonstration project by the China National Nuclear Corporation (CNNC). The project is also known as Xiapu fast reactor pilot project. Construction of the reactor started in late 2017. The reactor will have an output of 1500 MWth thermal power and 600 MW electric power.
A larger commercial-scale reactor, the CFR-1000, is also planned.
