A third-generation European Pressurized Reactor (EPR) nuclear power unit at Taishan power plant in south China's Guangdong Province, was successfully linked to grid on Friday.

The Taishan nuclear power plant's No.1 power unit is the world's first third-generation EPR nuclear power unit that has been linked to grid, according to China Guangdong Nuclear Power Company (CGNPC).

The plant is the largest Sino-French project in the energy field. It is run by a joint venture set up by CGNPC, French energy supplier Electricite de France (EDF), and Guangdong Yudean Group.

Construction on the No.1 power unit began in 2009. Construction of another reactor of the same kind, the No.2 power unit, began in 2010.

The EPR technology used in the Taishan reactors is third-generation nuclear power technology jointly developed by EDF and Framatome.
