Russian Energy Supplies Help China Solve Electricity Issues

Increased energy supplies from Russia to China through the Amurskaya-Heihe overhead transmission line mitigate electricity shortages in China, according to the State Grid Corporation of China (SGCC).  

It is noted by the SGCC that the Amurskaya-Heihe transmission line is the highest voltage class cross-border transmission line in China. At the request of Beijing, Russian state energy company Inter RAO doubled its October supplies to China year on year. As specified, since October 1, 2021, the full-load (750 MW) operating time of the 500 kW converter station has increased from 5 hours to 16 hours a day, significantly alleviating the tenuous situation with the power supply.

In addition, the company has strengthened inspections and control over the operation of converter substations to ensure the stable operation of electrical equipment as the authorities of several provinces in China are currently trying to cope with power and heating interruptions arisen due to the high cost of coal and an increase in natural gas prices.
