Power utility Électricité de France (EDF) has delivered into operation the 1,750 MW Taishan-2 nuclear unit of the plant located in Taishan, Guangdong province (China). The first unit was commissioned in December 2018. The project was developed by TNPJVC, a joint venture founded by CGN (51%), EDF (30%) and the Chinese electrician Guangdong Energy Group (19%). EDF's Framatome supplied the plant's EPR technology.

Taishan’s two reactors are capable of supplying the Chinese power grid with up to 24 TWh a year, which correspond to the annual electricity consumption of around 5 million Chinese users

The estimated turnover of the project for EDF is estimated at around €2.4bn.
