Poor economic performance enhanced by rising oil costs have delayed the construction of Taiwan's two-unit Lungmen plant by up to three years.
According to reports attributed to state-run Taiwan Power, commissioning of the ABWR plant would be delayed to 2009 from the original schedule of 2006–2007. Rising oil import costs and a local economic slowdown has apparently affected investment in the project, which in turn has affected construction progress.
The two 1350MWe reactor site located in Kungliao was to have been more than 80% complete by now, but is less than 65%.
