China, Beijing: China started to construct an UHV DC transmission line between its two regions.
China commenced the construction of an ultra-high voltage direct current transmission line linking two provincial regions, according to the State Grid Corporation of China.
Stretching a total of 1,634 km, the electricity transmission project starts in northwest China’s Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region and ends in the central province of Hunan.
The project has a rated voltage of ±800 kV and a rated transmission capacity of 8 M kW, with a total investment of about 3.95 B USD (28.1 B CNY).
Once completed, this transmission line is estimated to supply electricity of over 36 B kWh per year to Hunan, a province with a strong demand for power to sustain its economic growth.
The project is part of a national plan unveiled last year to develop clean energy, including wind and photovoltaic power, in China’s deserts and barren lands.
China has announced that it will peak carbon dioxide emissions by 2030 and achieve carbon neutrality by 2060.
