NDRC determines on-grid price for third generation nuclear power technology

In 2013, the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC), Zhejiang DRC, Shangdong DRC and Guangdong DRC issued a notice that supports the introduction of technology to the first batch of nuclear power units in the provinces. Last week, in conjunction with the provinces’ support for the first three generations (AP1000) of nuclear power projects, the following trial prices of on-grid tariffs have been determined:

  1. Guangdong Taishan Phase I Nuclear Power Project: 0.4350 CNY/kWh
  2. Zhejiang Sanmen Phase I Nuclear Power Project: 0.4203 CNY/kWh
  3. Shandong Haiyang Phase I Nuclear Power Project: 0.4151 CNY/kWh

NDRC approves transmission price of Guangdong project in Northwestern Yunnan

The transmission price of the DC project in Northwestern Yunnan has been approved at 0.092 CNY/kWh (including tax without line loss); the transmission price of the supporting AC project in Yunnan Province is 0.015 CNY/kWh. The transmission price is determined by income generated from CAPEX, which ultimately depends on the span of distance of the project. (NDRC)

The starting point of the project is located in Dali Prefecture, Yunnan Province. The line runs through Yunnan, Guizhou, Guangxi and Guangdong Provinces, with its endpoint located in Shenzhen, Guangdong Province. With a total length of 1,928 kilometers, it is the longest transmission project of the Southern Power Grid. The project relies on a ±800 kV DC transmission technology with a transmission capacity of 5GW.

 

 

SPIC releases final 6GW subsidy free onshore wind project WTG bidding results

Following the close of the recent bidding (refer to Azure’s earlier publication for more details on the bidding process) for SPIC’s 6GW subsidy free onshore wind project, the final results have been released last week: the project site will be located in Siziwangqi, Wulanchabu City, Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region (IMAR), it will require a total investment of 42.544 billion CNY, occupy a planned area of 3,800 square kilometers and reach a construction scale of 6GW.
