General Electric has concluded two separate deals with Huaneng Power International (HPI) and China Power International Development (CPI International) to supply steam turbine generator units for projects in China.

The units will be supplied for Taihang Power Plant and Dabieshan Power Plant phase II project.

Under the first agreement signed with HPI, GE will be supplying two ultra-supercritical steam turbines integrated with two turbo generators each having an output capacity of 660MW, for the 1,320MW Taihang project.

Located in Shanxi province in northern parts of the country, the plant is expected to meet the rising power demands in the region.

The units will be delivered by the end of next year.

The second deal requires GE to deliver two 660MW ultra-supercritical steam turbine and generator units for the 1,320MW Dabieshan power plant phase II development by mid-2017.

The plant is being developed in Hubei province.

"With the winning of these projects, we further strengthen GE’s position and footprint in China’s STG market."

GE Power rotating equipment general manager Martin Boller said: "With the winning of these projects, we further strengthen GE’s position and footprint in China’s STG market.

"As China has made energy efficiency and conservation a priority in its development strategy, we are well positioned and pleased to contribute to this strategy with our best-in-class technology and expertise."

Last month, the company signed an agreement with Shanxi Jincheng Coal Group to supply 12 Ecomagination qualified, 3.35MW J620 gas engines for another Chinese power project.

The project involved expansion of a coal mine methane (CMM) gas-fueled power plant at the Chengzhuang coal mine in Jincheng City, Shanxi Province, China.
