The Xianning Nuclear Power Plant is under construction in Dafanzhen, Tongshan County, Xianning, Hubei Province, China.[2] It is planned to host at least four 1,250-megawatt (MW) AP1000 pressurized water reactors.

The plant is owned by Hubei Nuclear Power Company, a joint venture of China Guangdong Nuclear Power Group (CGNPC) and Hubei Energy Group Ltd. The cost of four AP1000 reactors is put at CNY 60 billion (US$8.8 billion). Work on the site began in 2010; the first reactor will start construction in 2011, and go online in 2015.[3]

The plant is described as the first nuclear power plant to be built in China's inland regions (i.e., not near the seacoast).[4] The plant is expected to use the water of the Fushui Reservoir for cooling and various ancillary purposes.[4]
