An innovative partnership brings a modern and efficient nuclear power plant to life at Taishan
The first concrete was poured for the unit 1 nuclear island in November 2009. At the beginning of 2018, French President Emmanuel Macron and his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping unveiled a plaque to highlight that Taishan would be the “first EPR in the world”.
In April 2018, the Chinese National Nuclear Safety Administration issued the permission for the fuel loading of Taishan's Unit 1. This step paves the way for the commissioning planned for later this year. The Unit 2 is expected to be put into operation in 2019.
