Technicians work on the upgrade project of the electricity transmission system in Nanyang, central China's Henan Province, April 13, 2011. China on Friday put into operation a project extending its ultra high voltage (UHV) system to boost electricity transmission capacity from the country's energy-rich northern regions to the power-short central provinces. A total of 120 million kwh of electricity -- equal to 60,000 tonnes of coal equivalent -- can be transmitted daily through the grids, which run between Jindongnan in northern Shanxi province and Nanyang, Henan province and Jingmen, Hubei province in central China. As the first such grid designed and built by China, the UHV grid became operational in January 2009 and was upgraded this year. (Xinhua)
