  • China's 13.86-GW Xiluodu hydropower plant begins commercial operation

    Xiluodu Hydropower Plant

    China's 13,860-MW Xiluodu hydropower plant has been connected into the country's power grid following a successful three-day test run, Hong Kong's Ministry of Foreign Affairs said.

    Work on the plant began in 2003. Xiluodu will ultimately house 18 turbine generators, though only 13 have been installed thus far.

    The Xiluodu project, located on the Jinsha River in the central Sichuan Province, will be the world's third-largest hydropower plant after China's Three Gorges and Brazil's Itaipu when fully completed in 2015.
