Yangjiang city in western Guangdong province had originally been earmarked for the country's first Generation III plants (see section above on Embarking upon Generation III plants).
After plans changed in the light of pressing generation needs in the region, Yangjiang will be the second nuclear power base of the Guangdong Nuclear Power Group (CGNPC). Development of all six units of the Yangjiang plant was approved in 2004, with CPR-1000 later confirmed as technology for it. Construction of the first of two units started in December 2008, for commercial operation in 2013. The second pair of units follow closely, with site works started in mid-2009, then the final two (as the second construction phase), with the last being built by 2017. Total cost is put at CNY 70 billion ($10.1 billion).
