Power Generating Equipment (5) (72,500-kilowatt hydroturbines and 50,000-kilowatt steam turbines)

A total of 1,150,000 kilowatts (kw) of power generating equipment was produced during the period from January through August 1959. This is equivalent to 63.9 per cent of the 1,800,000 kw called for under the annual plan for 1959. China's production of power generating equipment increased from 198,000 kw in 1957 to 800,000 kw in 1958, and further increased to 1,800,000 kw for 1959.

The technical standards of China's power generating equipment manufacturing industry have improved with production. The production of a complete set of 72,500-kw hydroelectric generating equipment originally scheduled for 1960 has already been successfully completed. Complete sets of 25,000-kw thermoelectric generating equipment are now being mass-produced. A 50,000-kw steam turbine and boiler have been completed during 1958 and 1959. The trial production of a steam turbine generator is also nearing completion.

At the All-China Industry and Transportation Exhibition in Peking, the chief exhibits were the complete sets of 72,500-kw hydroelectric generating equipment and 50,000-kw thermoelectric generating equipment. We were told that this electric generating equipment is being installed in the new generating stations. The first key section of the 72,500-kw water turbine generating group in the display was a quarter section of the stator of the generator. The large hollow shaft of the water turbine, which is over 4
