Electric Power Becomes a New Growth Point of Yunnan-ASEAN

Source:   Time:

Yunnan Power Grid Company actively implements “going out” strategy and continuously strengthens cooperation with ASEAN countries. As a result, electric power becomes a new growth point of Yunnan –ASEAN trade.

 At present, Yunnan Power Grid Corporation has built up 6 lines including two voltage levels and 4 channels to transport power to Vietnam. The largest power transmission capacity was up to nearly 80 million kilowatts. From September 2004 to the end of November 2009, the total amount of power transmitted to Vietnam was 10.534 billion kwh, bringing nearly 500 million dollars. Although the total amount was small, with the increasing demand for electricity in Vietnam, China-Vietnam cooperation has broad prospects. In the coming years, power transmitted from Yunnan Power Grid Corporation to Vietnam would show rapid growth.
   
In addition, the electricity cooperation between Yunnan and Laos has also presented a rapid development in recent years. Yunnan Power Grid Corporation has been supplying power through 10 kV, 35 kV to northern Laos since 2001. In 2009, Yunnan Power Grid Corporation and the Lao National Power Corporation signed Agreement of 115kV Power Purchase from Yunnan to the Northern Laos. Yunnan power grid and the northern Lao grid interconnected through a 115 kilovolt transmission line. The two corporations are respectively responsible for investment and financing within their own bound. As power interconnection projects has launched, Yunnan Power Grid Corporation has undertaken the power transmission project in Laos. It is also the first offshore general contracting project for this corporation since its implementation of “going out” strategy.
    As Yunnan’s power producing capacity and market share continues to expand, it is becoming possible to supply power to other ASEAN countries so that the Yunnan-ASEAN cooperation will be deepened.
