Shweli River Hydropower Station is located at the main stream of Shweli River in the north of Myanmar, next to the border of China and Myanmar. The installed capacity of the power station is 600MW (6x100MW), and the designed annual generating capacity is 400MW.
Yunnan United Power Development Corporation was jointly founded by Huaneng Lancang River Hydropower Co., Ltd. (50%), Yunnan Hexing Investment Co., Ltd. (34%), and Yunnan Machinery Equipments Import and Export Co., Ltd. (16%). The registered address of the Corporation is Floor 19, World Expo Building, No 45, Tuodong Rd, Kunming city, Yunnan province.
The Shweli River Hydropower Station was jointly established by Yunnan United Power Development Corporation and the Hydropower Implementation Bureau of First Power Department of Myanmar, and was approved by the Burmese government to be developed, operated and managed with BOT model, with a franchise operation period of 40 years.
The engineering construction of Shweli River Hydropower Station broke many international and domestic records in hydropower construction. On December 10, 2006, the river was successfully dammed, and on September 5, 2008, the first generating unit was put into operation. With 4 generating units being put into operation within one year in 2008, the Shweli River Hydropower project has set a new record in construction speed for domestic hydropower construction of similar scale. In April, 2009, the last generating unit was put into operation. It is only 21 months between the time when the river was dammed and the time when the first generating unit was put into operation; and it is only 8 months between the time when the first generating unit was put into operation and the time when the last generating unit was put into operation.
The engineering construction was completed with high speed, high quality, and zero accident, thus creating a favorable image of “Chinese Hydropower” in Myanmar.
