Jiangsu Xinhai Power Generation Co., Ltd. is subordinated to Jiangsu Province Asset Management Group and with over 1,800 employees and the total asset amount of over CNY 6 billion, it is one of the large state-owned thermal power generation enterprises and the major power plants. And many national reputations have been granted successively to Xinhai, such as “Daqing-Style Enterprise”, “National First-Class Thermal Power Generation Plant”, “National May 1st Labor Award”, “National Dual Civilization Unit in the Electric Power Industry” and “National Advanced Unit of Corporate Culture Construction”.

The company has two 330MW sets and two 1,000MW ultra-supercritical power generator sets built with the total installed capacity of 2,660MW and it plans to construct Xuwei New Zone LNG Supporting Combustion Machine Project and Suwending Pumped-Storage Hydroplant Project. During “the 13rd five-year plan”, it positively gets integrated into the national project “Belt and Road” and Jiangsu coastal development strategy, fully utilizes the unique geological and resource advantages in Lianyungang, speeds up the approved project of the four 300MW hydropower units for Jiangsu Guosen Liangyungang pumped-storage power station; meanwhile, it plans to construct Xuwei New Zone back pressure type coal burning and thermoelectricity project of 6 furnaces and 5 units and the clean energy project of six 9F gas engines, the company can grow into a comprehensive modern power generation enterprise integrating thermal power, pumped-storage hydropower and gas power generation.

This project first applies a new generation of digital modeling technology platform independently developed by Luculent for overall production process modeling in the power plant to construct the process models of each main and auxiliary device and establish the knowledge platform. Meanwhile, overall use of the modeling technology can greatly shorten the project implementation cycle and ensure the project implementation quality. And the digital modeling technology provides the visualized modeling tool, the uniform access interface and the open model maintenance structure to directly transmit sample data, work condition libraries and knowledge bases from the similar power plant and the similar units and share resources, so such technology may bring a huge reform for the project implementation.
