Under the terms of the contract – awarded by Datang Guanyinyang Hydro Power Development Co., Ltd., a subsidiary of China Datang Corporation -THPC is scheduled to deliver the equipment in 2014. The hydropower plant expected to start commercial operation in the middle of 2015.

In five years of operation, THPC has already supplied approximately 100 turbines and generators, mainly to Chinese projects.
