China: Guangdong Huizhou LNG Power Generation Project
(The Netherlands CDM Facility)

UNFCCC Reference No.: 1884

The LNG project is located near the South China Sea in the Daya Bay Economic and Technical Development Zone, 48 kilometers from Huizhou City in Guangdong Province, China. The project consists of a highly efficient power-generation plant with a combined-cycle gas turbine that burns liquid natural gas, which is the least environmentally damaging form of power production from fossil fuels. Liquid natural gas is natural gas that has been processed to remove impurities and heavy hydrocarbons and then compressed to liquid, a low-volume form that is easy to ship. When it is burned in the combined-cycle turbine, it rotates a generator to produce electricity. Next, a second phase recovers the heat remaining in the spent fuel to produce steam powering a steam turbine, resulting in thermal efficiency of over 50%.

The electricity generated by the project will displace power in the Southern China Power Grid, where more than half the power comes from coal-fired power plants.
