The National Nuclear Safety Administration approved Monday the debugging of two units in Fuqing Nuclear Power Plant in Fuzhou, Fujian province.

The two units, units five and six, use Hualong One technology, a domestically developed, third-generation reactor design, jointly designed by two domestic nuclear power giants, China General Nuclear Power Group and China National Nuclear Corporation.

This move comes after the Ministry of Ecology and Environment on April 4 released the operating license for units one and two of Taishan Nuclear Power Plant.

Taishan Nuclear Power Plant is the largest cooperation project between China and France in the energy sector, with two 1750-megawatt EPR units in its first phase of construction.

The first reactor completed a 168-hour trial run last year, putting it on course to become the world's first commercial nuclear reactor using third-generation EPR technology.
