[ Xin Hua News, June 4, 2002 ] Recently, banners and flags were fluttering about and the sound of drums was filling the air at the construction site of the two 330-thousand-kilowatt-generating units, which is the third phase of the extension of the Dalad Power Plant project. As soon as Zhou Dehai, a Vice Chairman of Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region (IMAR), gave the command to lay the foundation of the project, sounds of engines of large excavators and fork-lift trucks started being heard at that moment, another hallmark project of the state-sponsored "Western Power To the East" plan has initiated its construction in Inner Mongolia.

Dalad Power Plant, having the total capacity of five million kilowatts, has already completed its first and second phases of the extension project by setting up four 330-thousand-kilowatt-generating units. This third phase of the project, including the establishment of the two 330-thousand-kilowatt-generating units, involved a total sum of 2.268 billion yuan invested. On May 22, the 59th standing committee of the State Council authorized the third phase of the extension project of the Dalad Power Plant. Inner Mongolia Power Company, Beijing International Electric Power Development Corporation and Guohua Power Company invested in the construction in a ratio of 4:3:3. The project is planned to be put to use within the "tenth five-year plan" period. The three parties who have invested in the project will operate according to the norms of the modern enterprise system, and will establish Jingda Eelectric Power Limited Company of Inner Mongolia. At present, all works of the third phase of the extension project have achieved scheduled results, and the construction is basically up to working standards.
