  • Third largest hydro project in China could begin generating power in 2012

    China's Xiangjiaba hydropower project is on track to begin generating power in 2012, Interfax China reported.

    The hydro plant is situated on the Jinshajiang River on the border between Yibin County and Shuifu County in Yunnan Province. At a cost of about 43.4 billion yuan (about US$6.3 billion), the hydro project will have a capacity of at least 6,000 megawatts, reports indicate.

    The project is slated to be the third-largest hydropower plant in China, after the Three Gorges and Xiluodu hydropower projects.

    According to the plant manufacturer and future operator, China Gezhouba Group Corp., construction of the Xiangjiaba hydro plant started in November 2006.

    According to the Yibin County government, the first turbine is expected to begin generating power in 2012. The plant will be fully operational by 2015, reports indicate.

    In other news, China Hydroelectric Corporation, a consolidator, developer and operator of small hydro projects, has signed definitive agreements to acquire a portion of the previously announced Minrui hydro projects in Yunnan Province.
