As everyone works hard to fight the spread of the virus, China Huadian Corporation Ltd., one of the five national power producers and a major player in China's Belt and Road Initiative, is contributing to make sure its overseas projects continue to generate power for their clients as usual.
In Cambodia, turbines at the Lower Stung Russei Chrum hydroelectric power project, with an installed capacity of 338 MW, are spinning as usual even as workers here are taking precautionary measures against COVID-19. The plant chalked up a total of 16.8921 GWh power for the operational year that ended on February 10, up 3.76% from the year before.
Within January, the Teninskaya power plant, a China Huadian-TGK-2 joint venture in Yaroslavl Oblast, Russia, managed to produce 300 GWh of electricity, or 101% of the projected output, even when one of the generators was put offline for seven days. Through the application of rigorous technical measures, engineers managed to maximize the efficiency of the units while optimizing the monthly output and all the other targets.
The Saudi Aramco Jazan 3,850-MW power plant, currently debugged and operated by China Huadian, is the world's largest combined-cycle facility to pull a successful grid connection. On February 5, workers connected 12 gas turbines with load and did it on their first try.
At an average chamber temperature of 500 degree Centigrade and a dispersion rate of 5 degree Centigrade, better than up to par, the grid connection was declared a success. This integrated gasification combined cycle (IGCC) plant, conducting the most advanced environmental technology, is set to be put into full operation by end of 2020.
As a major player in China's Belt and Road Initiative and a Chinese company in the context of globalization, China Huadian has a responsibility to make sure its facilities are running as normal so that the world can count on the stability of the industry chain and global capacity.
