POWERCHINA projects win top national engineering awards

Updated: January 05,2023

A list of the first batch of National Quality Engineering Awards for 2022-2023 was recently announced and 19 projects of POWERCHINA were in the list.

Of those, 6 POWERCHINA projects were selected as National Quality Engineering Gold Awards, while 13 domestic and overseas projects won National Quality Engineering Awards.

To date, POWERCHINA has won 71 National Quality Engineering Gold Awards and 233 National Quality Engineering Awards.

The National Quality Engineering Award was established in 1981 and is selected by the China Association of Construction Enterprise Management. It is the earliest and highest-standard national quality award in the field of engineering construction in the country. The National Quality Engineering Gold Award is the highest honor in the field of engineering construction.

The 6 POWERCHINA projects that won National Quality Engineering Gold Awards are as follows:


The Huangdeng Hydropower Station in Yunnan province.

The Huangdeng Hydropower Station is located in Lanping county in Yunnan province. It is the fifth-level hydropower station, developed in the upper reaches of the Lancang River. It has the highest concrete gravity dam in the country.With a total installed capacity of 1.9 million kW, the station can generate power of 8.63 billion kWh per year. In addition to sending electricity to the Yunnan power grid, it is also responsible for the task of transmitting electricity from west to east.

The Niulan River-Dianchi Water Replenishment Project is the single water conservancy project with the largest investment and the fastest construction among the completed water conservancy projects in Yunnan. It provides Kunming with a reliable emergency backup water source, which greatly eases the pressure on the urban water supply and effectively guarantees the safety of the water supply.


The Niulan River-Dianchi Water Replenishment Project. 

The multi-terminal ultra-high voltage (UHV) flexible direct current (DC) project - transmitting power from the Wudongde hydropower station to the Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region and Guangdong province - is the world's first UHV multi-terminal hybrid DC project. It can reduce coal consumption by 9.2 million metric tons and carbon dioxide emissions by 24.5 million tons in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area every year.

The 1,000 MW Talatan photovoltaic power station is located in Gonghe county in Qinghai province, with a total of 13 of 35 kV prefabricated cabin gathering stations. Based on photovoltaic power generation technology, the station has promoted the localization of the country's photovoltaic industry.

The flight area project of Beijing Daxing International Airport has completed the runway with the highest standard of technology and level of quality of airport engineering design in the world and it can take off and land the largest aircraft in the world.

The Ya'an-Kangding Expressway has a length of about 135 kilometers, 109 bridges on the whole route and a bridge-tunnel ratio as high as 82 percent. It has shortened the driving time from Chengdu to Kangding from more than 7 hours to about 4 hours.
