EDF’s joint venture at the Fuzhou power plant in Jiangxi demonstrates the perfect mix of experience and cutting edge technology.
Fuzhou is EDF’s first investment in a ultra supercritical (USC) power plant. This technology ensures a very high efficiency level and a significantly lower environmental impact (Nox, Sox and dust) when compared to conventional fossil fired power plants.

The Fuzhou power plant is run as a joint venture between EDF (49%) and Datang Group (51%), signed in April 2014. Construction started the same year.
The Fuzhou power plant (2 x 1000 MW) set a national record for construction, with the commissioning of both units taking place five months ahead of schedule and just 22 months after the concrete was first poured.
EDF’s commitment to Fuzhou power plant: from construction to management
EDF was involved throughout the construction period, and the company remains at the heart of day-to-day operations with key positions in the management team of the power plant.
EDF’s input, as well as its international experience, is supporting the joint-venture in achieving excellent performance.
