Power Generation Advantages of Three Gorges Dam

Three Gorges Dam

The advantages of Three Gorges Dam include flood control, power generation, navigation, environment protection and so on. Among these advantages, the power generation is one of the most obvious advantages of Three Gorges Dam.

Power Generation Advantages of Three Gorges Dam – Giant Benefits of Power Generation

The total installed capacity of Three Gorges Hydropower Station is 18.2 million KW, and annual generation capacity is 84.7 billion KWH. If to count the Three Gorges Hydropower Station generation capacity based on 0.18 to 0.21 per KWh, the annul income of selling electricity will reach 18.1 billion to 21.9 billion RMB. This money not only can pay the principal and interests of loan, but also can contribute large amount of income tax to state.

Power Generation Advantages of Three Gorges Dam – Power Generation Capacity

The Three Gorges underground hydropower station is located in the right bank of the Three Gorges Dam, which uses the waste water to generate power. It can improve the utilization percent of the Three Gorges Project to Yangtze River water resource. After the 6 units in the underground hydropower station put into operation, adding the 26 units in the power stations of the right bank and left bank, the total installed power generation capacity of Three Gorges Hydropower Station will reach 22.5 million KW, and annual most power generation capacity can reach 100 billion KWH.

Power Generation Advantages of Three Gorges Dam – Wide Beneficiary of Three Gorges Hydropower

The Three Gorges Power Transmission System Project is key state project which approved to be built by National People's Congress in 1992. The total investment to this project is 34.859 billion RMB. The total transmission line is 6519 kilometers long, which cross over more than 160 areas at the county level in Central China, East China, South China, and Southwest China. It is praised as the largest scale AC-DC Hybrid Transmission System with most complex techniques in the world. Until the end of 2010, the Three Gorges Power Transmission System has transmitted out 449.23 billion KWH electricity, which is equal to the power generation capacity of 16.2 million tons standard coal. Until March, 2011, the Three Gorges Hydropower Station Power Transmission Line Project which experienced 20 years' argument and construction completed. Then, the provinces in Central China, East China, South China and Southwest China will become the beneficiary of Three Gorges Hydropower Station.
