On December 30, 2006, generator set #2 of Huaneng Yuhuan Power Plant completed a 168-hour trial run
under full load, meaning that the first homemade 1 million KW USC power station project of
China—phase 1 project of Huaneng Yuhuan Power Plant was put into commercial operation 8 months
ahead of the scheduled deadline.
Yuhuan Power Plant is a coal-fired power plant in China with the highest heat efficiency and
comprehensive environmental protection performance, but lowest power-generating coal consumption of
its generator sets. The heat efficiency of the generator sets reaches as high as 45% and power-generating
coal consumption is 288.5 g/KWH; it has completed a seawater desalination project with the largest
capacity in China, which is the first in China to use “dual film method” seawater desalination technology,
making it possible to produce 1440 m3/h of water and save 8 million m3 of freshwater resources each year.
The desulphurization project was put into operation concurrently.
