Installation began on a Chinese water turbo generator with completely independent intellectual property rights and the world's largest single unit capacity at the Xiangjiaba Hydropower Station on Jan. 24.

The domestically-produced water turbo generator, with a single unit capacity of 800,000 kilowatts, is the world's largest water turbo generator both in size and capacity.

After the one-year installation period and commissioning, this unit set is expected to generate electricity by October 2012. The Xiangjiaba Hydropower Station joins the Gezhouba Hydropower Station and the Three Gorges Power Station as another national key clean energy construction project.
