Ningde Nuclear Power Plant ( Chinese:宁德核电站 )is located in Taimushan Town, Ningde City, Fujian Province in eastern China, near the East China Sea. The nuclear power plant will be constructed in two phases.
Phase 1 invests 52 billion yuan (US$7.6 billion) to build a total of 4 1,000MW-class reactors. Construction of power generation unit No. 1 began on February 18, 2008, and began commercial operation on April 15, 2013. All 4 power generation units in Phase 1 were fully completed on July 21, 2016.
The second phase of the project includes two China’s self-developed “Hualong No. 1” reactors (HPR-1000), which are currently under construction.
The total cost of the Ningde nuclear power plant will exceed 70 billion yuan (10.2 billion US dollars). The current installed capacity is 4,072 MW, and the installed capacity after all stations is expected to be 6,000 MW.
In 2007, the Ningde Nuclear Power Plant project was approved by the China Development and Reform Commission.
On February 18, 2008, the Ningde Nuclear Power Plant commencement ceremony. Unit 1 started construction.
On December 28, 2012, Unit 1 was completed and connected to the grid for power generation and put into commercial operation on April 18, 2013.
On November 12, 2008, Unit 2 was completed and started construction, and was put into grid-connected power generation on January 4, 2014. It was put into commercial operation on May 4, 2014.
On January 8, 2010, Unit 3 was completed and started construction, and was put into grid-connected power generation on March 21, 2015. It was put into commercial operation on June 10, 2015.
On September 29, 2010, Unit 4 was completed and started construction, and was put into grid-connected power generation on March 29, 2016. It was put into commercial operation on July 21, 2016.
Two 1000MW units are still under construction in the second phase of the project.
