General Electric has signed up to supplying two steam turbine generator units for two power plants, which are set to help meet growing demand in northern and central China.
The contracts are scheduled for the 1,320 MW Taihang coal-fired power plant and the 1,320MW Dabieshan power plant phase II project.
The deal was made with Huaneng Power International (HPI) and China Power International Development (CPI International) to supply two ultra-supercritical steam turbines integrated with two turbo generators each with 660 MW generation capacity for the Taihang power plant located in North China's Shanxi Province.
Additionally, GE will deliver two 660 MW ultra-supercritical steam turbines generators units for the Dabieshan power plant phase II project, which is considered as one of the backbone power providers in China's Hubei Province.
The plant will meet the power needs of about one million homes in the region, in 2017.
GE Power rotating equipment general manager Martin Boller said: "As China has made energy efficiency and conservation a priority in its development strategy, we are well positioned and pleased to contribute to this strategy with our best-in-class technology and expertise."
