China General Nuclear Power Corp, one of the country's largest nuclear power companies, has seen its total installed nuclear power capacity reach 27.14 million kilowatts and installed capacity under operation reaching 58.18 million kilowatts as of 2019. Total assets by the end of last year reached 750 billion yuan, it said in a report released on Monday.

The company, China's largest and the world's third-biggest nuclear energy company, has actively promoted clean energy development including nuclear, wind and solar power in the past few years.

Its clean energy business has covered 28 countries worldwide as of last year, with on-grid power reaching 261.6 billion kilowatts, equal to a carbon dioxide reduction of more than 210 million tons, it said.

The company's 19 power plants in China's Hubei province, which was hit hardest by the novel coronavirus pandemic, have generated power up to 368 million kilowatt hours from Jan 24 to March 27, it said.
