Fangjiashan Nuclear Power Plant (方家山核电站) is a nuclear power plant in the Zhejiang province, China, adjacent to the existing Qinshan Nuclear Power Plant. Two 1,080 megawatt (MWe) CPR-1000 pressurized water reactors (PWRs) are under construction, at a total cost of 26 billion yuan (US$3.8 billion).[1]

'First concrete' for the first unit at the Fangjiashan plant was poured on 26 December 2008. Construction of the second unit followed in July 2009. The reactors were first connected to the grid December 2014 and January 2015, respectively.[2][3]

In December 2014 it was announced that units 3 and 4 would be of the Hualong-1 (updated CPR-1000) design.[4]
