First two pumped storage units at Jinzhai commissioned

13 December 2022

GE Hydro Solutions has been contracted by Anhui Jinzhai Pumped Storage Power Co, one of the divisions of State Grid XinYuan, to supply four new 300 MW Pumped Storage turbines, generator-motors as well as the balance of plant equipment for the Anhui Jinzhai Pumped Storage power plant located in Jinzhai County, Anhui Province, China. The first two units have now been delivered to the project, have passed the trial operation period, and are connected to the grid.

The 1.2 GW project will play a role in helping China achieve its goal of building more than 200 pumped storage stations with a combined capacity of 270 GW by 2025. Acting as a sustainable large-scale energy storage system, the Jinzhai Pumped Storage station will save up to 89 500 tons of coal and reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 179 000 tons every year.
