Wudongde Hydropower Project
 

Located at the main stream of Jinsha River between Luquan County of Yunnan Province and Huidong County of Sichuan Province, the Wudongde Hydropower Project is under construction mainly for power generation, flood control, and sediment trapping.

Main structures of the project consist of the retaining dam (double-curvature arch dam), flood discharge structures, water intake and power generation facilities. The maximum dam height is 240m. The underground power houses are located on both banks, each installed with 5 generating units, of which the proposed total installed capacity is 8700 MW and the estimated annual power output is 39.07 TWh.

According to the preliminary design, the Wudongde Hydropower Project has a normal storage level of 950m with a total reservoir capacity of 4.0 billion m3.

The project is scheduled to gain approval of the State Council in 2012; officially initiated in 2014; the first batch of generating units will be commissioned in 2018; and by 2020 the project will be completed.
