China’s first hydropower station

China’s Shilongba hydropower plant has been operating in Yunnan province for 110 years. It began operations on May 28, 1912, and was the country’s first hydropower plant, marking a nationwide transition to clean energy. Following seven expansions over the past century, the plant now has four workshops, with a total installed capacity of 7,360 kilowatt. In 2018, it was included in the first batch of China’s industrial heritage protection sites by the State Ministry of Industry and Information Technology.
