(News Broadcast): Today (December 20), the world's largest hydropower project with the most comprehensive technical difficulties under construction - the last one-million-kilowatt unit of Baihetan Hydropower Station was put into operation, marking the world's largest clean hydropower project. The energy corridor is fully established.

  Baihetan Hydropower Station is located at the main stream section of the Jinsha River at the junction of Ningnan County, Sichuan Province and Qiaojia County, Yunnan Province. Ranked second in the world.

  The Baihetan Hydropower Station is a huge project with complex geological conditions. The project is located in the dry and hot valley of the Jinsha River, and its comprehensive technical difficulty ranks first in the world.

A total of 16 hydro-generator units with a unit capacity of 1 million kilowatts are arranged on the left and right sides of the Baihetan Hydropower Station, which is currently the hydro-generator unit with the largest unit capacity in the world.

The hydraulic design, electromagnetic design, ventilation and cooling of the unit, and the R&D and application of high-performance materials have reached the world's leading level.

  On the Jinsha River, Baihetan Hydropower Station and six world-class giant cascade power stations including Wudongde, Xiluodu, Xiangjiaba, Three Gorges, and Gezhouba have built the world's largest clean energy corridor, with a total installed capacity equivalent to that of three Three Gorges hydropower stations. capacity.

  A drop of water generates 6 times of electricity, and the world's largest clean energy corridor realizes the maximum utilization of hydropower resources in the Yangtze River Basin.

Up to now, the cumulative power generation of the six giant power stations has exceeded 3.18 trillion kwh, and the emission of carbon dioxide has been reduced by about 2.5 billion tons.
