26 April 2007

Construction of a nuclear power plant in Wafangdian, 104 km north of Dalian, a port city in northeast China's Liaoning Province is expected to begin in September, according to local media.

Developers China Guangdong Nuclear Power Group Holdings Co (CGNPG), say the recent approval of feasibility study by Shenzhen Engineering Designs Co has paved the way for the development to begin.

When complete the station will have four reactors producing up to 6 GW, with the first phase due for completion by 2012.

The project, approved by the National Development and Reform Commission last April, will cost yuan 23 billion ($2.88 billion) shared between the China Power Investment Corp, CGNPG, and two Liaoning companies.
