Shilongba Hydro Power Station, the first hydroelectric power plant in China, was officially operated in 1912 and has been operating to this day.
Built on the Tanglangchuan River in the southwestern part of Yunnan Province, the power plant supplies electricity to Kunming, the provincial capital, through a 32km-long power transmission line.
The hydroelectric power plant has been expanded seven times and currently has four power plants and a facility capacity of 7,360 kW (kilowatt).
[스룽바 발전소 관계자] “This tiny power plant has supplied over 1 billion kW-hours (kilowatt-hour) of electricity over the last 110 years.”
[스룽바 발전소 총책임자] “The capacity of Shilongba Hydro Power Plant is relatively small, but it has great historical significance. It has opened the first chapter of China’s hydroelectric power industry and is regarded as a leader in clean energy trends.”
