Feb 08, 2002 01:00 AM

Southwest China's Yunnan Province will increase its power generating capacity by over 8 mm kW in the 10th Five-Year Plan period (2001-05). According to Li Yingde, deputy director of the Yunnan Provincial Planning Commission, the province will complete the construction of the 1.35-mm-kW Dachaoshan Power Station and a number of medium-sized hydropower stations, which will have a combined installed capacity of over 1 mm kW.

Meanwhile, the province will start a number of thermal power projects in the period, including the 600,000-kW second phase project of the Qujing Power Plant, the 600,000-kW Kaiyuan Power Plant and the 1.2-mm-kW Diandong Power Plant. Already starting is the construction of a 600,000 kW sixth phase project of the Xuanwei Power Plant.
In the 10th Five-Year plan period, the province will invest over 70 bn yuan ($ 8.47 bn) in power facilities, with over 40 bn yuan going to power sources construction, and over 20 bn yuan for power grid construction.

The completion of these power source and power grid projects will elevate the province's "west-east power transmission" project onto a new stage, and power production will become an engine of growth of the province.
