The plant's other reactor Unit 1 finished its cold test on 25 September. It has just celebrated the start of core loading operations.

Both reactors are 1000MWe CPR-1000 units. Unit 2 is predicted to start commercial operation in June 2011.

According to CGNPC, unit 2 had a transformer fire on May 16, though on-site fire suppression systems put it out without casualties or any effect on plant systems.
