Final power generator installed at Three Gorges

11 July 2012
A ceremony was held on 4 July to mark the delivery of the final 700MW electricity-generating turbine at the Three Gorges hydropower station. Operation has already started. This means that, after more than 10 years of installation and fine-tuning, all 32 turbines with a total capacity of 2,500MW are now in place.

The first turbine started operation on 10 July 2003 and became part of the national power grid. By 4 July this year, the hydropower station had generated 564.8bn kWh, accounting for 3.3 per cent of the national total.
