At the critical moment of coping with the local COVID-19 outbreak and promoting the resumption of work and production, Shanghai Electric made new progress in the thermal power market, winning the bid for the 2×1000MW expansion project of Chang’an Yiyang Power Generation. The project is the first double heat project of Shaanxi Coal and Chemistry Group and the Province of Hunan. Since the COVID-19 resurgence in Shanghai, Shanghai Electric has signed contracts for the manufacturing of generator sets for the first double reheat projects in the provinces of Zhejiang, Fujian and Hunan, while coping with the pandemic with all-out efforts.

Under the guidance of the national carbon peaking and carbon neutrality goals, low-carbon, environmental protection and high-efficiency features have become the key to the revitalization of thermal power generation industry. Shanghai Electric’s industry-leading double reheat technology has been well received by major energy companies, and “double reheat” has become another iconic business of the Group.

With an installed capacity of 1,960 MW, Chang’an Yiyang Power Generation is the second largest thermal power producer and a major power supplier in Hunan. The company’s three-phase 2×1000MW expansion project is the first one under the strategic cooperation agreement on energy between Shaanxi Coal and Chemistry Group and the province of Hunan. With existing land, equipment and facilities, the project enjoys advantages in construction period, investment and economic benefits; located in the power load center of Changsha-Zhuzhou-Xiangtan city cluster and the core area of Hunan power grid, it boasts obvious geographical advantages. With the support of Shaanxi Coal and Chemistry Group, the project has outstanding strength in coal resources in Hunan Province, where there is a shortage of primary energy. After completion, it will fill the power gap in Hunan Province during the 14th Five-Year Plan period and ensure sufficient power supply in the region. It was approved on December 30, 2021, and is scheduled to be fully put into operation in 2024.

Attaching great importance to the project, Shanghai Electric Power Generation Group mobilized professional and technical personnel many times last year to provide tailored solutions for the customer based on its world-leading double reheat technology as well as the actual conditions of the project and diversified needs of the customer, finally winning the recognition of the power plant. When bidding on the project, Shanghai was amid COVID-19 flare-ups. Unable to conduct on-site bidding, the Power Generation Group coordinated with the Xi’an office staff of its subsidiary Shanghai Electric Machinery to make concerted efforts, finally winning the bidding.
