East China's Jiangsu Province invests to increase power output

Sep 17, 1998 02:00 AM

East China's Jiangsu Province will spend at least 48.8 bn yuan over the next 3 years to increase power output to meet the growing demand for electricity.
The program aims to bring installed capacity to 19.5 mm kW by the year 2000 from the present 14.38 mm kW, according to provincial power department sources.
Over the past 5 years, Jiangsu has achieved a economic growth of 15.5 % a year, with a gross domestic product reaching 669.5 bn yuan last year, ranking second in China, next to south China Guangdong Province.
The rapid expansion of the economy in Jiangsu, a major economic powerhouse in the country, has put great pressure on the power supply which has long been restricted by backward facilities and the lack of variety in energy sources.
Under the new program, the province will use much of these funds to build some large and medium-sized power plants equipped with generating units of no less than 300 MW each.
These will include a nuclear power station with two 1000 MW generating units in Lianyungang, and 2 pumping regenerative stations, in Yixing and Liyang.
The province will transform many existing small power stations into environment-friendly and modern facilities. It also plans to establish or upgrade more than 400 transformer substations to ensure a better power supply for both urban and rural residents.
