In line with helping meet the growing high-efficiency power needs in northern and central China, GE has announced two deals under contracts with Huaneng Power International (HPI) and China Power International Development Limited (CPI International) for the supply of two steam turbine generator units respectively at Taihang power plant and Dabieshan power plant phase II project.
The units will produce new electricity that will be able to provide the equivalent power needed to supply about 1 million homes in the region.
GE will deliver two ultra-supercritical steam turbines coupled with two turbo generators to Taihang power plant that will each produce 660 MW of power. Located in North China’s Shanxi Province, the 1320 MW of new electricity will meet the energy needs of Beijing, Tianjin and Hebei areas and boost economic development in the region. The units are scheduled for delivery by the end of 2017.
GE also will deliver two 660 MW ultra-supercritical steam turbines generators units to Dabieshan power plant phase II project. As one of the backbone power providers in China’s Hubei Province, the project will help satisfy the ever increasing local power needs and further enhance the reliability of local power grid. The units are scheduled for delivery by mid-2017.
“We are honored to be awarded with these important contracts. These deals demonstrate the confidence and trust bestowed upon GE by our major Chinese customers, Huaneng Power International and CPI International. With the winning of these projects, we further strengthen GE’s position and footprint in China’s STG market. As China has made energy efficiency and conservation a priority in its development strategy, we are well positioned and pleased to contribute to this strategy with our best-in-class technology and expertise,” said Martin Boller, General Manager of Rotating Equipment, GE Power.
These deals build on GE’s long-standing relationship with HPI and CPI. It has a long-term cooperative relationship with HPI that dates back more than a decade and includes supplying steam turbines and generators for Pingliang II power and tower boilers for Luoyuan power plant. CPI International and GE have also previously partnered on many important energy projects in China. In 2008, GE successfully provided equipment to the first phase of Dabieshan power plant with excellent performance.
