Hydropower Station

Shuibuya Hydropower Project is a 233-meter-high dam. It will have an installed capacity of 1.6 million kw and will be able to generate 3.92 billion kwh of electricity annually when finished. Shuibuya reservoir will be able to store 4.58 billion cu m of water. The completion of Shuibuya Hydropower Project will play an important role in regulating water peaks on Yangtze River during summer flood season and power supply peaks on central China power grid, enhancing safe operation reliability of local power grids. It will help reduce direct economic losses from flooding by 15 billion yuan. The Shuibuya power station project, the biggest aid-the-poor propeller project in the southwest of Hubei Province’s ethnic minority areas, provided a total of 90,000 job opportunities, and created 1.07 percent of Hubei Province’s GNP.

Geheyan Hydropower Station, 93 km downstream from Shuibuya Project, has an installed generating capacity of 1.2 million kw and has been in operation since 1998. During the Eighth Five-Year Plan period, in Changyang County, Yichang, Hubei Province, the Geheyan Hydropower Station was built with funds provided by the central and provincial governments. It is a key water conservancy project. The station consists of a dam, a powerhouse and a lift. The dam is a heavy-pressure dam and the storage capacity is 3.4 billion cubic meters. The four generating units installed have a capacity of 1.211 million KW. The station is the first power one in the Qingjiang Step Power Stations Project. In 1998, Premier Zhu Rongji said,”The Geheyan Hydropower Station has played an important role in this year’s flood fighting, and I’d like to extend my gratitude to the whole staff.”

Gaobazhou Hydropower Station was built in Yidu, Hubei Province in 1997. It is the lowest dam of the three step power stations on the Qingjiang River.
 It is 50 kilometers from the Geheyan Hydropower Station on the upper section of the river, 12 kilometers from the juncture of the Yangtze and Qingjiang Rivers and 45 kilometers from the Gezhouba Hydropower Station. The station consists of a concrete heavy-pressure dam with facilities for navigation and a riverbed powerhouse.
    
The three power stations have greatly helped to develop transportation, municipal construction, tourism and telecommunication facilities in the backward riverine areas.
