First of four generators online at Chinese pumped-storage plant

LIAONING PROVINCE, China 2/1/12 (PennWell) -- The Pushihe pumped-storage hydropower facility is now online, China's National Energy Administration announces.

The US$712 million project, in east Liaoning Kuandian Manchu Autonomous County, includes four Alstom 300-MW turbine-generator units and is expected to produce 1,860 GWh of electricity annually once the plant is fully operational. Only one generator is online now, but sources say the remaining three are expected to be operational by the end of the year.

Construction of the project began in 2006.
