Xiluodu Hydropower Project
 

Located at the Jinsha River Valley on the boundary between Leibo County of Sichuan Province and Yongshan County of Yunnan Province, the Xiluodu Hydropower Project is a large-scale multi-purpose scheme that will bring benefits in silt detention, flood control and downstream navigation improvement in addition to its main function of power generation.
 
The main structures of the project consist of the dam, flood discharge structures, water intake and power generation facilities. The dam is a concrete double-curvature arch dam with a crest elevation of 610m, a maximum height of 278m and a crest arc length of 698.07m. The underground power houses on the right and left banks are both installed with 9 generating units to a total installed capacity of 13860 MW and an annual power output of 57.12 TWh.
 
With a normal storage level of 600m and a dead storage level of 540m, Xiluodu has a total storage capacity of 12.67 billion m3 and a regulating storage of 6.46 billion m3 capable of partial yearly regulation.
 
The preparatory work of Xiluodu commenced at the end of 2003 and its official initiation fell on the end of 2005. In 2007, the river closure is fulfilled. Its first batch of generating units will be commissioned in 2013; and by 2015 the project will be completed.
