The commencement ceremony for the start of Wuqiangxi Hydropower Plant capacity expansion project was held on March 26, 2019.
Wuqiangxi Hydropower Plant, Wuling’s first and Hunan’s largest of its kind, has a total installed capacity of 1,200MW. Since its operation in 1994, it has generated electricity power of 118 TWh. The capacity expansion project is located on the right bank of its dam. It is designed to utilize the plentiful inflow to produce additional electricity power in summers. With an added installed capacity of 500 MW (2*250 MW) and annual power output of 558.3 GWh, equivalently resulting in CO2 emission reduction of 472,100 tons per year, the expansion project is assured of good returns economically and ecologically.
The project is a key construction project of the Hunan’s energy sector “13th Five-year Plan” (2016-2020), and the very last project of Wuling’s cascade development of the Yuanshui River. It will surely make positive contributions to the local economic growth.
