China’s largest gas-fired thermal power plant in operation in Beijing

22 July 2008 – The newly-built China’s largest gas- fired thermal power plant is in operation in Beijing to directly service Olympic facilities in the capital, Beijing Daily reported.

The plant, Taiyanggong Power Plant, has the world’s largest thermal power supplying CCGT (Combined Cycle Gas Turbine) unit. Its added 800 MW installed capacity may satisfy the power demand of 3400 families expanding heating areas by 10 million square meters.

In comparison with ultra-supercritical coal-fired units’ 45 per cent of generation ratio, the new plant can reach 58 per cent in non-thermal power supplying period.
