Coal storage at 22 major power plants responsible for heating in northeastern China's Heilongjiang province increased to about 4.25 million tonnes recently, worth of nearly 30 days' of consumption averagely in the heating season, local media reported.
In response to unusually strong winds and heavy snow in this winter, the provincial economic planner has launched emergency plan for coal-fired power transmission by adding daily runs of coal-laden rails to ensure fuel supply and, in the meantime, being prepared for timely repairing damaged power lines, Harbin News reported.
Daily arrivals of rail wagons carrying coal in the province increased from 2,867 on November 18, to 3,415 on November 19, and further climbed to a new high in the year, at 3,547 on November 20, it said.
