China's Xiluodu hydropower station generates over 600-TWh electricity Production & Sales,  Hydropower 2024-02-18 09:49:02

China's Xiluodu hydropower station, the world's fourth largest of its kind in terms of generating capacity, had produced over 600 TWh of clean electricity as of February 14, 2024, according to China Three Gorges Cooperation.


This was equivalent to reducing consumption by around 180 million tonnes of standard coal and lowering carbon dioxide emissions by about 494 million tonnes.


The mega hydropower station, which straddles Leibo county in Sichuan province and Yongshan county in Yunnan province, both in southwestern China, began full operation in June 2014. It boasts 18 generating units with a total installed capacity of 13.86 GW.


Since the start of this year, the hydropower station has operated as many as 16 units during the peak period, with average daily output of up to 10.42 GW, ensuring a safe and stable power supply.


Xiluodu, together with Wudongde, Baihetan, Xiangjiaba, Three Gorges and Gezhouba, constitute the world's largest clean energy corridor. With 110 hydraulic turbine generator units, the installed capacity reaches around 71.70 GW, providing green power for high-quality economic and social development.
