[Bidding Opening for Ningbo Xiwu-Ma'aoling Expressway Expansion Project] On March 22, 2023, the Zhejiang Provincial Department of Transportation released the announcement of the bid evaluation results for investors in the reconstruction and expansion project of the G15 Shenhai Expressway Ningbo Xiwu to Ma'aoling section. The G15 Shenhai Expressway Ningbo Jiangshan to Ma'aoling section is a national The G15 Shenhai Expressway, one of the 11 north-south longitudinal lines of the expressway network, is a component of the nine-vertical, nine-horizontal, five-ring, and five-channel multi-connection of the expressway network in Zhejiang Province. It is also a part of the Yongtaiwen Expressway. component. The G15 Shenhai Expressway Ningbo Jiangshan-Ma'aoling Section Reconstruction and Expansion Project is divided into two projects: the G15 Shenhai Expressway Ningbo Jiangshan-Xiwu Section Reconstruction and Expansion Project, and the G15 Shenhai Expressway Ningbo Xiwu-Maaoling Section Reconstruction and Expansion Project. The total length of the main line of this project is 69.069km, of which the width along the old road is 53.615km, the new line is 15.454km, and the length of the Meilin branch line is 2.99km. A total of 6 intercommunications and 2 service areas are set up in this project. Among them, 3 existing intercommunications need to be reconstructed in situ, 1 relocated intercommunication, 2 newly built intercommunications, 1 expanded service area, and 1 relocated service area. The main line is equipped with 20598m/114 bridges, including 10726m/5 super-large bridges, 7589m/18 large bridges, 2283m/91 medium and small bridges; 5400.5m/5 tunnels, including 4530.5m/3 long tunnels and 870m medium and short tunnels /2 blocks; the length of bridges and tunnels accounts for 37.65% of the total length of the route. The project investment is estimated to be about 19.698 billion yuan, of which construction and installation costs are about 12.006 billion yuan. Editor / Zhao E

  • [South Africa: Install 18GW of renewable energy generation projects by 2030]
  • South Africa is one of the best places in the world to develop photovoltaic projects due to its abundant photovoltaic power resources. The country has set a target of installing 18GW of renewable energy generation facilities by 2030, and photovoltaic systems are expected to make up a large part of that target. The South African Government's Renewable Energy Independent Generator Procurement Program (REIPPP) has been successful in attracting investment and supporting the development of photovoltaic projects in the country. The Renewable Energy Independent Generator Procurement Program (REIPPP) launched its sixth bid window in April 2022. The goal is to add 2,600MW of renewable energy to South Africa's energy mix. Meanwhile, South Africa's national energy regulator NERSA approved the establishment of 15 independent power generators in May 2022 and June 2022. Editor/Xu Shengpeng

  • [Wind power system has become the second largest power source in Yunnan]
  • Recently, new energy projects in Yunnan have been put into operation and connected to the grid smoothly. The power generation in Yunnan has reached a new high. At present, the installed wind power system has reached 11.21 million kW, becoming the second largest power source in Yunnan after hydropower. The energy authorities of Yunnan Province will further standardize the competition and distribution of photovoltaic resources in the province, strengthen factor guarantee, and coordinate and promote the synchronous construction of source network projects. We will ensure that 7 million kW will be connected to the grid in the first half of 2023 and 15 million kW will be put into production within the year. Data show that in the first quarter of 2023, the average utilization hours of wind power equipment in Yunnan reached 914 hours, much higher than the national average level of 615 hours. In the first four months of this year, wind power generated 12.427 billion KWH, up 18.78% year on year, becoming the main source of incremental power in Yunnan Province. Yunnan Province has excellent wind energy resources. The wind resources are proportional to the altitude, and the wind speed, the average wind power density and the utilization hours in the upper altitude area all increase. Because most of the mountain Basi areas in Yunnan Province are between 1000m and 2000m above sea level, the high altitude downwind resources have a significant topographic effect, resulting in a higher utilization hours. Data show that the number of hours of wind power utilization in Yunnan ranks the top two in China all year round. Editor/Xu Shengpeng
