FACTBOX-China's nuclear power plants and plans

 BEIJING, DEC 30 (Reuters) - China Guangdong Nuclear Power Corp (CGNPC), one of China's three nuclear power developers, said it
has received government approval to conduct an early-stage study
for Lufeng nuclear power station in eastern Guangdong.
 China has 13 working reactors with 10.8 gigawatts
of total generating capacity.
China's official nuclear capacity target for 2020 remains 40
GW, less than 5 percent of its current total installed capacity,
or enough to power Spain. However, officials said China was
considering raising the goal to 80 GW or more for 2020.
 The following lists China's nuclear power plants already
operating, under construction, approved by the government or
