The Taishan Nuclear Power Plant (Chinese: 台山核电站; pinyin: Táishān Hédiànzhàn) is a nuclear power plant in Taishan, Guangdong province, China.The plant features two operational EPR reactors. The first unit, Taishan 1, came online and was connected to the grid in August 2018. It was planned to go online in 2013 and to be the third site to house EPR units. However, the start of operation was postponed to late 2018. Also, delays in other EPR construction sites mean that Taishan has been the first nuclear power plant with an operational EPR unit.
The project is owned by Guangdong Taishan Nuclear Power Joint Venture Company Limited (TNPC), which is 70% owned by China Guangdong Nuclear Power Group (CGNPC) and 30% by Électricité de France (EDF).
Each generator has a nameplate capacity 1750 MWe. These generators are the largest single-piece electrical generators. The 495 tonne generator stator is built by Dongfang Electric. Of the 3500 MWe gross delivered, around 180 MWe will be used by plant systems such as the large pumps that circulate cooling water, leaving 3320 MWe net for supply to the grid.
