China National Nuclear Power Co Ltd started the construction of the Zhangzhou nuclear project on Wednesday, the company said in a filing to the Shanghai Stock Exchange.

The project, which will use China's homegrown third-generation nuclear reactor technology know as the "Hualong One", was the first new conventional nuclear project to be approved by China in three years.
