Nuclear power

Being one of China’s three nuclear power developers and operators as well as the leading nuclear power technology supplier, SPIC is appointed by the State Council of China to accomplish the introduction, assimilation and self-reliant innovation of Gen III nuclear power technology.

From researching and designing China’s first NPP (Qinshan NPP) and first overseas NPP (Chashma NPP in Pakistan) to developing the world-leading Gen III Passive PWR CAP1400, SPIC is becoming a competitive player in the global nuclear power industry.

State Nuclear Power Technology Corporation (SNPTC), an industry group with majority shares held by SPIC, is the platform for consolidating nuclear power assets and businesses, which primarily include:

Nuclear power investment, development, construction and O&M;

introduction,assimilation, R&D, application and promotion of Gen III nuclear power technology AP1000; implementation of national science and technology major projects, such as R&D, application and promotion of advanced nuclear power technologies like CAP1400 and small modular reactors; operation and lifetime services for NPPs, manufacturing of nuclear power equipment and materials, etc.

Nuclear Power Development and Operation

SPIC owns a nuclear power capacity of 4,480 MW in operation and 4,740 MW under construction as a majority shareholder. It is also the minority shareholder of 1,080 MW nuclear power assets in operation, including Qinshan NPP Phases II and III, Jiangsu NPP, etc. Besides, SPIC owns a number of reserved project sites in both coastal areas of China like Bailong in Guangxi, Lianjiang in Guangdong, Lian Jiang in Fujian and inland areas like Pengze in Jiangxi, Chisong in Jilin, Xiaomoshan in Hunan and Fuling in Chongqing.

Planning and layout of SPIC’s main nuclear power projects: By 2020, the installed nuclear power capacity under construction and in operation will both reach 10 GW.

Hongyanhe NPP

SPIC and China General Nuclear Power Group (CGN) are equal controlling shareholders of Hongyanhe NPP, which is located in Wafangdian, Dalian, Liaoning Province。 The project is planned to build six 1,000 MW class PWRs。 By now, Units 1 to 4 have been in commercial operation, while Units 5 and 6 are under construction in accordance with the schedule。

Introduction and Promotion of AP1000 Technology
Steadily proceed with the construction of self-reliant AP1000 projects

Four AP1000 units are being built in Sanmen, Zhejiang Province and Haiyang, Shandong Province (Units 1 and 2 of Sanmen NPP and Units 1 and 2 of Haiyang NPP), marking the largest Sino–US cooperation in energy technology。
