It is expected to begin commercial operation in early 2019.

State-run China National Nuclear Corporation (CNNC) has connected the Haiyang-2 AP1000 nuclear power reactor located in the Shandong province of China to the national grid. The 1,157 MWe (1,251 MWe gross) unit becomes the fourth Chinese AP1000 to be connected to the domestic power network and is now slated to begin commercial operation in early 2019.

Meanwhile, the first unit of the Sanmen nuclear project, which became the world's first AP1000 to start up, achieving grid connection in July 2018 and reaching commercial operation in September 2018, has completed a 700 hour demonstration run and performance test and has entered the guarantee period. The Sanmen power plant is operated by CNNC's subsidiary Sanmen Nuclear Power Company and will include two AP1000 reactors.
