The first two 1650-1700 MWe EPRs planned for Taishan in Guangdong province form part of an €8 billion contract signed by Areva and the Guangdong Nuclear Power Group (CGNPC) in November 2007.
The Taishan project is owned by the Guangdong Taishan Nuclear Power Joint Venture Company Limited (TNPC), a joint venture between EDF (30%) and CGNPC. First concrete was poured in September 2009, and unit 1 should be commissioned "around 2014", with unit 2 in 2015. Areva has begun fabrication of major components for both units.
