Datang Begins Construction of 2GW New Energy Delivery Project

PVTIME – China Datang’s Tuoketuo Outbound Project, one of China’s first large-scale wind power photovoltaic base project and the country’s first use of existing thermal power channels to bundle and deliver new energy multi-energy, began construction on October 20.

He Haidong, Deputy Secretary of the Hohhot Municipal Party Committee and Mayor, Wang Jinbao, Director of the Energy Bureau of the Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, and Peng Yong, member of the China Datang Party Leadership Group and Deputy General Manager, attended the groundbreaking ceremony. Liu Chengmin, member of the Standing Committee of the Hohhot Municipal Party Committee and Executive Deputy Mayor, presided over the meeting.

This project is a model of the cooperation between the government of Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region and China Datang. It is a key project for China Datang to enhance the power guarantee capacity of the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region and accelerate the development of green transformation. The project has an installed capacity of 2GW and a total investment of 12 billion yuan. After the project is put into operation in 2023, more than 5 billion kilowatt-hours of “green power” can be added every year, more than 1.7 million tons of standard coal can be saved, and carbon dioxide emissions can be reduced by more than 4 million MT.

The 2GW transmission project will use Datang Tuoketuo Power Generation Company and its dedicated transmission channels to bundle the “green power” directly to the Beijing-Tianjin-Tangshan Power Grid. After the completion of the project, it will effectively increase the proportion of clean energy in the Beijing-Tianjin-Tangshan power grid, provide safe and stable power supply to the capital, ease the pressure on the capital’s environment, consolidate the results of air pollution prevention and control in the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region, promote the continuous improvement of the ecological environment quality in the surrounding areas of the capital, and accelerate the realization of ” “Carbon peaking and carbon neutrality”.
