China Begins Giant Hydro Energy Undertaking In Brahmaputra

China commissioned its largest Hydro Energy Undertaking in Tibet to be constructed on the Brahmaputra river. Upon completion, the Zangmu Hydro Energy Station hovering over the river Yarlung Zangbo River, which is the native identify for the Brahmaputra, may have a capability of 510,000 Kilo Watts and produce about 2.5 Billion Kilo Watt hours of Energy yearly upon completion of the venture. The station is price a 1.5 Billion USD or 9.6 Billion Yuan. That is simply the primary considered one of 5 others which can be due for completion.

As of 2014, the put in energy capability was in a position to produce or generate 1.46 million kilo watts. Along with the facility investments made, a complete of 320 Million USD is invested to construct and keep numerous environmental pleasant amenities such because the Sewage Therapy Crops, Rubbish Recycling Crops and Fish Safety Stations.
