Adding China Power
Contract for combined-cycle addition at gas-fired power plant; US$430 million investment to increase capacity to 2150 MW
East China Electric Power Design Institute (ECEPDI), a regional subsidiary of China Power Engineering Consultancy Corp. (CPECC), announced the signing of a survey and engineering contract for Jiangsu Huadian Qishuyan Power Generation Co. Ltd.’s 903 MW combined-cycle addition at the Huadian Qishuyan gas-fired cogeneration power plant.
The plant was originally a coal-fired power plant dating back to 1921. In 2005, two 9F-class, 390 MW combined-cycle units were put into operation. Two 220 MW combined-cycle units for a combined heat and power (CHP) supply were commissioned in November and December 2011, respectively.
The current project will add two additional F-class, combined-cycle units, each comprising a M701F4 combustion turbine, a heat recovery steam generator (HRSG) and a steam turbine in single-shaft layout. This will increase site capacity to 2150 MW and supply more power to the grid.
The total investment in the project will be about US$430 million. The supply contract for the main equipment has been awarded to Dongfang Electric Corp.
