Daya Bay Nuclear Power Station

       As the first-ever large commercial nuclear power plant in Mainland China, GNPS consists of two Pressurized Water Reactors (PWR) of 984 MWe each. The plant has been constructed and operated under the pattern of “starting at a significant height to introduce, digest, absorb and innovate” and “constructing with loans, repaying loans with revenues from electricity sales and joint venture operations”. The main structural work commenced in August 1987 and GNPS was put into commercial operations on May 6, 1994.
