The customer Yuannan Jinsha River Hydropower Co. was very satisfied with the test run for the plant situated on the Jinsha river at the border of Yulong County (Lijiang) and Shangri-La County (Diqing). Right after the examination the machine went into commercial operation. It is the first of four Voith turbine-generator units. Each unit has capacity of 612MW. All of them are expected go into operation by the end of 2015.
