Fuqing Nuclear Power Plant ( Chinese:福清核电站 ) is located in Qianxue Village, Sanshan Town, Fuqing City, Fujian Province, in the east of China, close to the Taiwan Strait.
Fuqing Nuclear Power Plant is divided into two phases. A total of four 1000MW second-generation improved PWR nuclear power units and two third-generation hydraulic reactor Hualong 1 (CPR-1000) are planned. The total planned installed capacity is estimated to be 6000MW. Investment close to 100 billion yuan (US $14.7 billion ).
The current installed capacity of Fuqing Nuclear Power Plant is 4,356 MW. This power station is operated by China National Nuclear Corporation Fujian Fuqing Nuclear Power Co., Ltd., which was established on May 16, 2006. China National Nuclear Corporation, Huadian Fujian Power Generation Co., Ltd. and Fujian Investment and Development Group Co., Ltd. hold 51%, 39% and 39% respectively. 10% equity participation and joint capital formation.
