Construction of the second phase of Changjiang nuclear power plant in southern China's Hainan province has started since March 31, according to an announcement from China Huaneng Group.
Two units – #3 and #4 – each with a capacity of 1.2 GW will be built in the second phase, which will adopt Hualong One technical scheme with China's independent intellectual property rights.
The second phase of the project will be put into operation by the end of 2026. Total investment would be nearly 40 billion yuan.
After the project is completed, it is expected to deliver 18 TWh of clean electricity to Hainan province each year, which is equivalent to reducing standard coal consumption by 5.5 million tonnes and reducing carbon dioxide emissions by 13 million tonnes.
The Phase II project will be built by state-run China Huaneng Group and China National Nuclear Corporation (CNNC). Huaneng holds a controlling 51% stake in the project through its subsidiary Huaneng Nuclear Power Development Co., Ltd.
It will be the first large pressurised water reactor project in which Huaneng holds a controlling stake.
