Construction of the first unit of the Hongyanhe nuclear power plant in Dalian, Liaoning, started in August 2007, though site works had been under way since July 2006.
It is described by CGNPC as the first nuclear power project in the 11th Five-Year Plan, with owner and operator being Liaoning Hongyanhe Nuclear Power Co. NNSA issued a construction licence for units 3 & 4 in March 2009, and first concrete for unit 3 was poured soon afterwards.
The cost of all four 1080 MWe CPR-1000 units in the first construction phase is put at CNY 50 billion (US$ 6.6 billion). China Nuclear Power Engineering Corporation (CNPEC), part of CGNPC, is managing the project - the first nuclear plant in the northeast of China. Shanghai Electric won a $260 million contract for equipment and Alstom is to provide the four turbine-generator sets for $184 million. Commercial operation is planned for 2012-14.
