Daya Bay Nuclear Power Base
A special highlight of the event is the visit to the Daya Bay Nuclear Power Base on 18 February 2013, the first and by far the largest commercial nuclear installation in China, for a limited number of conference participants. During the visit, participants will obtain a general overview of the nuclear power generation, the self-developing course of the Daya Bay Nuclear Power Plant, and the research and development of CGNPC’s ACPR1000 technology.

Daya Bay is located near to Dapeng in Guangdong Province. The site was chosen on the basis that it is technically suitable for a nuclear power station and is close enough to supply power to Hong Kong. The Daya Bay plant has two pressurised water reactor generating units with a total electrical capacity of 1,968MW. Daya Bay produces around 14 billion kWh of electricity per year, of which 70% is imported by CLP to its Hong Kong system.
