China's third-largest hydropower station went into operation on November 5 with the world's largest power generating unit officially starting work.

The No.7 generator with a capacity of 800,000 kw, at the Xiangjiaba hydropower station, started working at 4:30 p.m. after a three-day test run, its operator China Three Gorges Corporation said.

The other of the first batch of generators to be put into use, the No.8 unit, is still under test.

 The station, designed with eight 800,000-kw generators, has a total generating capacity only after the Three Gorges and Xiluodu hydropower stations.

The station is designed to generate 30.8 billion kwh a year after all its generators put into operation. Apart from helping to meet demand in provinces of Sichuan and Yunnan, it will mainly supply power to the country's east.
