So far this year, the institute has secured five similar overseas contracts for a combined total of 4,230 megawatts (MW).
The three projects are: the 2 X 600 MW boiler, turbine and generator (BTG) engineering service contract for the DVC Project in India; the 1+1 X 300 MW BTG engineering service contract for India's Jindal Group; and the survey and engineering service contract for the 1 x 330 MW Uong Bi Thermal Power Plant in Vietnam.
Founded in the 1960s, SEPDI is a leading electric power design enterprise that focuses on surveying, geotechnical engineering and design, with more than 40 years of experience in China. In the first half of 2008, SEPDI had more than 2,100 MW of capacity commissioned under its design.
The institute is expected to have 5,760 MW of installed capacity, 3,314 kilometers of transmission lines and 10,680 megavolt-amperes of transformer substations to be commissioned under its design this year. While ensuring the survey and engineering of projects in China, SEPDI has been enhancing preparations for overseas projects.
The institute is expected to have engineering contracts for more than 10 oversea projects to be signed this year with a total installed capacity more than 11,000 MW.
