China's first LNG fueled power plant operational

China's first LNG (liquefied natural gas) fueled generators has been put into operation in Shenzhen.

The generators with capacity of 250,000 kilowatts are powered by some 200 tons of LNG per day. When running in full capacity at the end of this month, 600,000 cubic meters of LNG will be needed a day to produce 3.5 million kilowatts/hours in 16 hours.

The LNG used in the project is transported to Shenzhen from Xinjiang. The distance is 4300 kilometers.

The power plant is built and run by Shenzhen Meishi Group.
