Comprehensive Utilization of the Water Resources of River Basins and Capability of Integrated Cascade Operation

The company continuously explores hydrological forecast for the upper and middle reaches of the Yangtze River after impoundment. It promotes the construction of a platform for the sharing of information about the hydrological regimes of the upper and middle reaches of the Yangtze River and continuously improves the accuracy of the prediction and forecast of hydrological and rain conditions.

Through "coordinated operation of four reservoirs", bringing the benefits of coordinated operation of cascade hydropower stations into full play will be conducive to improving water energy utilization and production efficiency, decreasing production and operating costs, further improving the profitability of CYPC, consolidating the status of CYPC as a leader in the global hydropower industry and laying a solid foundation for the efficient implementation of a series of development strategies in the future.

In 2015, through elaborate timing of the storage and discharge of four cascade reservoirs of the river basin at the end of the flood season, we successfully completed water storage tasks for the reservoirs, with a cumulative additional power generated from water saved at cascade hydropower stations of 9.2 TWh.

The needs for downstream navigation, ecological water replenishment, reduction of sedimentation at the rear of the reservoir, and ecological regulation and tests were taken into consideration.

Theaccuracy of forecasts of daily power generation planning has reached


Cumulative Additional Power Generated from Water Saved at Cascade Hydropower Stations


Capabilities of Troubleshooting and Maintenance of Large-scale Hydropower Stations

With continuous conclusion and innovation, the company has grasped the capabilities of operation for the generating units under all working conditions with drastic changes of water levels as well as the rules of safe operation of generating units at different water levels, laying a solid foundation for safe and stable production.

In 2015, the reservoir achieved it's 175-meter trial impounding target for the 6th year in a row;
No surplus water release from the Three Gorges Hydropower Station for the whole year;
Annual total power generation at the Gezhouba Power Station reached 17.97 TWh, setting a new record;
The power outputs at Xiluodu and Xiangjiaba hydropower stations also set records since the two power stations came into operation;
The Xiangjiaba Hydropower Station experienced "zero unplanned shutdown" for the whole year, and the cascade hydropower stations of river basins achieved safe and stable operation for the whole year.

Capabilities of Troubleshooting and Maintenance of Large-scale Hydropower Stations

Establishing an on-line status monitoring system to obtain real-time information about health status of equipment;
Establishing a failure diagnosis and forecast system to improve capabilities of failure diagnosis and forecast;
Forming a troubleshooting and management system for cascade power stations of river basins to improve the core competitiveness of the company in troubleshooting and maintaining cascade power stations of river basins in an all-round way.

Capabilities of Trans-regional Hydropower Marketing

Attaching importance to the research and analysis of related policies, improving research capabilities, and precisely judging policy orientation;
Strengthening communication and exchange with governments and enterprises of provinces and cities receiving power supply, and following up the situation of power supply in such areas in a timely manner;
Improving the company's own operation and management capabilities and responding to customer demands in a timely manner to realize reasonable consumption of the power generated by the company.

In 2017, the annual cumulative power generated by the company is 210.89 TWh, producing 26.654 billion RMB of operating income.
