The Fuqing Nuclear Power Plant (simplified Chinese: 福清核电站; traditional Chinese: 福清核電站; pinyin: Fúqīng Hédiànzhàn) is a nuclear power plant in Fuqing, Fujian Province, China. The plant is located on the coast of Xinghua Bay, near Qianxue Village, Sanshan Town.[1] The station has four 1,089 megawatt (MW) CPR-1000 pressurized water reactors (PWRs).[2] The CPR-1000 is an advanced PWR design developed by China from the Areva-designed PWRs at the Daya Bay Nuclear Power Plant.[3] The plant was jointly constructed and is operated by China National Nuclear Corporation (51%), China Huadian Corp. (39%) and the Fujian Investment & Development Co Ltd. (10%).

Construction of the first unit began on 21 November 2008[2] and was completed in 2014. First concrete for Unit 2 was poured on 17 June 2009[4] and the unit was started in October 2015. First concrete for Unit 3 was poured on 31 December 2010. Construction of Unit 4 was to begin in 2011, but was delayed until November 2012 by China's nuclear safety review after the Japanese nuclear accident.

In November 2014 it was announced that units 5 and 6 would be of the Hualong One (updated CPR-1000) design, with unit 5 scheduled to be in operation about 2019.[5] The first concrete was poured for Fuqing 5 on 7 May 2015.[6]

Reactor data[edit]

The Fuqing Nuclear Power Plant consist of 4 operational reactors, and 2 reactors under construction.
