Northwestern China's Gansu province proposed to comprehensively improve its energy production, storage and transportation capacity, and build an important integrated national energy hub, according to an Opinion Paper issued by the provincial government.
Gansu aims to promote the construction of new coal lines, speed up the expansion and reconstruction of existing lines, and build supporting railways and feeder lines for coal gathering and distribution in mining areas, so as to increase the transportation capacity of coal from Gansu to southwestern China's Sichuan and Chongqing, as well as coal supplies from Xinjiang to the province.
The Opinion said the province will also work to optimize the layout and structure of the traditional energy industry, building Longdong comprehensive energy base and mining areas in Pingliang and Qingyang.
The backbone transmission network with large capacity and high voltage will be one of the key construction projects in the province. It will accelerate the construction of the ±800 kV eastern Gansu area-Shandong UHV DC project, and actively promote the second UHV DC transmission channel in Hexi Corridor.
In the meantime, Gansu will accelerate the construction of clean energy base, timely launching the 10-GW wind-solar complementary power generation base in Jinchang-Wuwei-Zhangye areas, and supporting construction for the phase II of the 10-GW wind power base in Jiuquan.
