T/G supplier: GE
EPC: Shanghai Electric Power Construction
Quick facts:In 1994, this simple-cycle gas turbine plant in Yangpu district was announced as GE's first equity investment in China, but the contracts for the $250mn joint venture were not finalized for two years. When the plant was finished, Shanghai Electric Power Co held 70% of the genco with GE Capital holding the remainder. The project was proposed for conversion to combined-cycle operation with the addition of Hangzhou HRSGs and two GE 100-MW steam sets, but this plan did not advance. The first thermal power plant at Zhabei was built by the British in 1930.
