GE wins deals to deliver 2.6 GW of power to major power plants in China
- GE units will produce new electricity that will be able to provide the equivalent power needed to supply about 1 million homes in the region.
- The GE steam turbine technology that we will provide is among the most efficient on the market today and will help support China’s commitment to efficiency and conservation.
- These deals build on GE’s long-standing relationship with two important Chinese customers: Huaneng Power International (HPI) and China Power International Development Limited (CPI International)
Beijing - January 21, 2016 - Today, GE (NYSE: GE) announced two deals that will help meet the growing high-efficiency power needs in northern and central China under contracts with Huaneng Power International (HPI) and China Power International Development Limited (CPI International) for two steam turbine generator units respectively at Taihang Power Plant and Dabieshan Power Plant phase II project.
GE will deliver two ultra-supercritical steam turbines coupled with two turbo generators to Taihang Power Plant that will each produce 660 megawatts (MW) of power. Located in North China’s Shanxi Province, the 1,320 MW of new electricity will meet the energy needs of Beijing, Tianjin and Hebei areas and boost economic development in the region. The units are scheduled for delivery by the end of 2017.
GE has a long-term cooperative relationship with HPI that dates back more than a decade and includes supplying steam turbines and generators for Pingliang II Power and tower boilers for Luoyuan Power Plant.
GE also will deliver two 660-MW ultra-supercritical steam turbines generators units to Dabieshan Power Plant phase II project. As one of the backbone power providers in China’s Hubei Province, the project will help satisfy the ever increasing local power needs and further enhance the reliability of local power grid. The units are scheduled for delivery by mid-2017.
In 2008, GE successfully provided equipment to the first phase of Dabieshan power plant with excellent performance. CPI International and GE have previously partnered on many important energy projects in China.
“We are honored to be awarded with these important contracts. These deals demonstrate the confidence and trust bestowed upon GE by our major Chinese customers, Huaneng Power International and CPI International. With the winning of these projects, we further strengthen GE’s position and footprint in China’s STG market. As China has made energy efficiency and conservation a priority in its development strategy, we are well positioned and pleased to contribute to this strategy with our best-in-class technology and expertise,” said Martin Boller, General Manager of Rotating Equipment, GE Power.
GE’s manufacturing base in Beijing is a leading steam turbine and generator manufacturing site in China. It designs and builds GE steam turbines and turbo generators for the Chinese market as well as the rest of the world. It has the manufacturing capacity for steam turbines and generators with a capacity of 600/660 MW to 1,000 MW.
The two deals further demonstrate the strategic rationale of the Alstom acquisition is paying off, allowing GE to sell more equipment to our power plant customers by also offering newly acquired Alstom turbines and generators.
