Today (28th) at around 6:55 in the morning, the first batch of units of the Jinsha River Baihetan Hydropower Station completed 72-hour continuous trial operation with load, and will be officially put into operation today.

CCTV reporter Zhang Wei: I am now in the underground powerhouse on the right bank of the Baihetan Hydropower Station. The Unit 14 and Unit 1 on the left bank that you have seen are undergoing final preparations before commissioning. After the 72-hour trial operation of the two units is completed, they will be handed over to the Baihetan Hydropower Plant and officially put into operation for power generation.

Baihetan Hydropower Station A total of 16 hydroelectric generating units with a single-unit capacity of 1 million kilowatts have been installed, which is currently the largest single-unit capacity in the world. It is understood that the electricity generated after the first batch of units is put into operation will be mainly sent to Jiangsu and Zhejiang to help the economic development of the Yangtze River Delta.

Sanxia Group White Crane Wang Zhilin, director of the Tan Project Construction Department: How much electricity can such a huge unit generate in one revolution? According to our calculations, each revolution of the wheel can generate about 150 degrees of electricity, which is equivalent to the electricity consumption of an ordinary family in one month. A single unit can generate nearly 17,000 kWh per minute.

Baihetan Hydropower Station Located in Ningnan County, Sichuan Province and Qiaojia County, Yunnan Province, located in the lower reaches of the Jinsha River, the power station has a total installed capacity of 16 million kilowatts, second only to the Three Gorges Project, ranking second in the world; It will be put into production and power generation in July 2022.

Breakthrough in million-kilowatt hydro-generator units

The Baihetan Hydropower Station adopts a million-kilowatt-level hydro-generator units completely designed and manufactured by my country for the first time, which has realized my country’s high-end equipment manufacturing Major breakthrough.

What is the concept of a single machine capacity of one million kilowatts? This means that a Baihetan hydroelectric generating unit can generate 1 million kilowatt-hours of electricity after one hour of operation. A total of 16 million kilowatt units have been designed and installed in the entire Baihetan Hydropower Station, all of which are independently developed and manufactured by my country.

Dongfang Motor Vice General Manager Yin Guojun: The entire rotating part exceeds 2,600 tons. After assembly, the operation has realized “zero counterweight”. It meets the requirements of high-quality goods in one startup. Realize our dream of high quality for millions of units.

Because the Baihetan million-kilowatt unit adopts a number of world-first new technologies, its development is far more difficult than any unit under construction or commissioning in the world. It is known as the “Everest” of the world’s hydropower industry. peak”. The successful commissioning of the unit will greatly promote the development of the entire hydropower industry, and also sign that my country is gradually becoming the center of hydropower innovation in the world.

Harbin Electric Group Wu Weizhang, Deputy Secretary of the Party Committee and General Manager of the Co., Ltd.: Because we have one million units of technology, we have driven the entire industry chain, including processing equipment and machine tools, as well as raw materials, supporting parts, and so on. The commissioning of the Baihetan unit indicates that our technology in hydropower generation equipment has reached the world’s advanced level. When our country expands this kind of project in the future, the technology is completely in our own hands.

Comprehensive benefits of power generation hydropower stations will be put into operation soon

The Baihetan Hydropower Station is the lower reaches of the Jinsha River, including Wudongde, Xiluodu, and Xiangjiaba Hydropower Stations among the four cascade power stations with the largest storage capacity and cascade benefits. The most significant hydropower station, as the first batch of units of the Baihetan Hydropower Station is about to be put into operation for power generation, its comprehensive benefits will become increasingly apparent.

According to estimates, after the Baihetan Hydropower Station is put into operation, it can save about 19.68 million tons of standard coal and reduce the emission of 51.6 million tons of carbon dioxide and 170,000 tons of sulfur dioxide every year. By then, the Baihetan Hydropower Station will form the world’s largest clean energy corridor together with the Three Gorges Project, the Gezhouba Project, and the Wudongde, Xiluodu, and Xiangjiaba hydropower stations on the Jinsha River.

China Three Gorges Corporation Deputy General Manager Fan Xiaxia: After the power station is put into operation, the annual power generation will reach 60 billion kWh, providing a steady stream of clean energy for the Yangtze River Delta region. It is a national strategic project integrating power generation, flood control, shipping, and environmental protection.

Baihetan Hydropower Station During the construction and operation period, not only the infrastructure conditions such as transportation and communication in the surrounding area of ​​the power station have been improved, but the peak period of the power station construction has increased the local employment by about 80,000 people. An increase in fiscal revenue of 2.9 billion yuan has become a driving force for local economic and social development.
