On June 12, 2006, the first generator set of phase 3 project of Wula’er Mountain Power Plant of North
United Power Co., Ltd. under the control of Huaneng completed a 168-hour test run and was transferred to
production one month ahead of the scheduled deadline.
Phase 3 of the plant calls for installation of 2 air-cooled generator sets of 300,000KW each and concurrent
installation of desulphurization devices. Construction started in July 2004, involving a total investment of
2.93 billion Yuan.
This is a pilot project of air-cooled generator sets of 300,000KW established by NDRC. To address the
water shortage in arid region, direct air-cooling condenser is used to double the saving of water compared
to similar wet-cooled generator sets. The completion and production of the project will play a positive role
in easing the power shortage in west Inner Mongolia and promoting local economic growth.
