China - Yanshi Thermal Power Project (English)

Inadequate electric generating capacity has been a major constraint to China's economic growth in the past. The Government of China gives high priority to electric power development and has developed a comprehensive strategy for power development. The Yanshi Thermal Power Project is located about 90 km west of Zhengzhou in Henan province and comprises the following components: (i) extension of the existing Yanshi thermal power plant by adding two generating units of 300 MW each at a site being developed; (ii) construction of five 220 kV transmission lines with associated substations; (iii) provision of technical assistance for a tariff study for the Henan power grid; and (iv) a training program for upgrading the technical, financial, and management skills of the Henan Provincial Electric Power Bureau (HPEPB) staff.
