Ningxia West Thermal Power Co., Ltd is affiliated to Hanas Group power generation business unit, providing centralized heating, cooling and power with clean energy. It is located in north of Jinfeng District, Yinchuan, covering a totally 53 mu (35,333㎡)
Ningxia West Thermal Power Plant is equipped with gas turbine transformed from Airbus aircraft A 380 engine manufactured by Rolls Royce and provided by Swiss Turbine. It was the only Trent 60 unit in Asia. Its total capacity is 64 MW, with yearly power generation of 352MWh and district heating area of 4 million㎡ working together with distributed heating centers. It provides with heating service to the neighboring communities. The unit has been performing well since business operation and improved the environment quality and met the district heating needs.
As Yinchuan keeps expanding its city limits, there are more areas in need of heating, which cannot be supplied by the single unit. Ningxia West Thermal Power Plant began with its extension project after government approval. With a capacity of 223.2MW, Ningxia West Thermal Power Co., Ltd 200MW CCHP Extension Project generates an annual heating of 1.78M GJ covering a heating area of 6.1 million㎡ working together with distributed heating centers.
Ningxia West Thermal Power Plant Phase I and Phase II uses a highly efficient gas-steam combined cycle unit to develop CCHP and provide high quality thermal energy. While achieving optimal energy utilization, the project contributes to environmental protection in conformity with China’s overall strategy for sustainable development, energy policies, clean energy and environment regulations. A viable business itself, the project provides the society with vital energy solutions without sacrificing the environment.
