Jul 26, 2005 - Xinhua

Preparations have begun for building an on-off station for a 1,000 kilovolt electricity transmission line in central China's Henan Province.

The line was designed to transmit electricity produced by coal-fired generators with a total capacity of 2.4 million kilowatts in Shaanxi and Shanxi provinces, both of which are rich in coal.

According to plan, construction of the line will begin at the end of the year and is scheduled to be completed and put into operation in 2007. The transmission line will mainly send electric power from Shaanxi and Shanxi provinces to central China region.

The transmission line will provide 3,000 megavolt-ampere of electric energy to Anyang city alone.
