(A) that had been built by private industry and
- past perfect is not required in this sentence

(B) built by private industry and which was

(C) to be built by private industry and which was

(D) built by private industry and
- suggest plant was built by 'model for generation..' as well

(E) to have been built by private industry and was
- present perfect is wrong

Between B and C, I'll go with B. It delivers the same message as C and is more concise.

D is illogical. The first plant to be built by private industry and model the model for a generation of modern nuclear reactors.

Suggests the plant was built by two 'things'. One - private industry. Two - model

IMO, D doesn't suggest any such thing. D merely states that Unit one was two things: the first plant built by private industry and the model...

The boldened parts are not only parallel, but also introduce different qualities that are joined by a conjunction, and.

"D" shud be it....."B" might suggest "private industry" is the model for a generation, which is illogical.

I will go with 'D'

The 'was' at the end of 'B', 'C' & 'E' makes it look like it is no longer a model of model nuclear reactors.
so between 'A' & 'D'. I chose 'D' becos past perfect is not required.

(D)
Absolute Phrase (Noun+Modifier). So No Verb should be there after ",".
