The construction of Huaneng Biedieli hydropower station along the Toxkan River officially started on the morning of May 2. This area is also where Manas was written, one of China's three great epics. The project, with a total investment of 2.135 billion yuan, is the largest poverty relief project in Xinjiang.

This large-scale power station is located south of Tianshan Mountain, along the Toxkan River in Kulansarak Township, Akqi County, Kizilsu Kirgiz Autonomous Prefecture, Xinjiang. It is the eighth level station of the "two-reservoir and eleven-level" Toxkan River hydro energy plan. According to the plans, in its initial stages, the project will contain the functions of power generation, irrigation, flood prevention and ecological protection.

According to Cao Peixi, General Manager of China Huaneng Group, the Huaneng Toxkan River Biedieli hydropower project is a run-of-river, diversion type hydropower station. The power station will have two levels of electric power generation. Each level is installed with four electrical generators, for a total of eight units, with an installed capacity of 248,000 kilowatts. The construction of the project will take 30 months to complete.
