08:11, January 07, 2013

In China, an important stage of a power transmission project to provide more power supply to Shanghai is to complete Sunday afternoon.

The current works are the most difficult part of the project. Engineers are installing pylon wires running across Huaihe River in Anhui Province, in low winter temperatures and up 200 meters in the air.

The project starts from Huainan City in Anhui Province and terminates in west Shanghai, running 656 kilometers. Once completed, it will supply the metropolis 50 billion kilowatt hours of power a year, equal to building six thermal power stations, each with an annual generating capacity of one million kilowatts.

It is the first two-circuit ultra-high voltage power transmission project, with the largest voltage class and capacity in the world.
