Russia’s State Atomic Energy Corporation ROSATOM has synchronised the 990 MWe third unit of the Tianwan nuclear power project (Tianwan 3) in Lianyungang, Jiangsu province, China. The unit is expected to begin commercial operations later in 2018. The Tianwan nuclear power plant is operated by the Jiangsu Nuclear Power Corporation, a JV between the China National Nuclear Corporation (50 per cent), China Power Investment Corporation (30 per cent) and Jiangsu Guoxin Group (20 per cent). The project consists of two 990 MW pressurised water reactors supplied by Rosatom and commissioned in 2006 and 2007. Further, two units of the same capacity are currently under construction.
