Shanghaimiao coal-fired power project, located in northern China's Inner Mongolia, was fully operational after the No.4 steam turbine wrapped up a 168-hour trail run, media reported.
This 4GW power project, owned by state power producer China Energy Investment Corporation and operated by its subsidiary Guodian Power Shanghaimiao, comprises four 1 GW coal-fired power units. Each unit is equipped with an ultra-supercritical coal-fired boiler, a high-performance steam turbine, an air-cooled generator, and a 240-meter-high flue stack.
The first unit of the project commenced power generation on December 27, 2021. The second and third units started generation on July 9 and December 31, 2022, respectively. All units have achieved excellent performance standards.
The plant will also be equipped with desulphurisation, denitrification, and dust removal systems to control emissions.
Each boiler of the power plant will fire up to 3,156 tonnes of pulverised coal an hour, which will be supplied by state-owned coal mining company China Shenhua Energy. A 7.3km-long special railway line will be laid to transport up to 11.8Mt of coal a year to the plant site.
The Shanghaimiao thermal power project is intended to feed electricity into the ±800kV Shanghaimiao-Shandong ultra-high-voltage direct current (UHVDC) transmission line, which has been operational since January 2019.
