Technology group Andritz is to supply four 350MW reversible pump-turbines and motor-generators, together with auxiliary equipment, for the ZhenAn pumped storage hydropower plant in Shaanxi province, China.

With a total installed hydropower capacity of 1400MW, ZhenAn will be the first pumped storage power station in northwest China. Andritz was awarded the contract, valued at more than €100 million, by Shaanxi ZhenAn Pumped Storage Co. Ltd., a subsidiary of State Grid Corporation of China (SGCC)

The four 350MW reversible pump-turbine units will operate with a water head of 440m. The first unit will be commissioned by the end of March 2023, and all units will be put into commercial operation by the end of December 2023. After completion, ZhenAn will be used for peak regulation, frequency regulation, and as synchronous condenser. In addition, it will serve as emergency standby reserve and black-start capacity for the Shaanxi power grid.
