As the first hydropower station in New China, Xin'anjiang Hydropower Station was built in the 1950s and completed in 60 years. It is absolutely proud of the Chinese people. This 100-meter-high hydropower station also directly created today's Thousand Island Lake. Following the company's visit, although the time has changed and the reinforced concrete and transformer equipment are aging, now hydropower stations are still the best means of peak shaving during peak periods. Generally, power generation begins in the afternoon, and in the morning, a generator generates electricity. At the top of the power station, you can see the Qiandao Lake directly. The water on both sides of the hydropower station is very clear. On the side of the hydropower station is the workshop of the farmer spring. The downstream Xin'anjiang River is also very clear and cool because of the tail water of the power station. The inside of the hydropower station is absolutely typical of warm winter and cool summer. The weather above 35 degrees is only 17 degrees when it enters the inside of the hydropower station, and the same temperature is observed in winter. As a base for visiting education, the power station itself is open to the outside world. There is also an exhibition hall inside, which shows some information about the construction. If you are interested in hydropower stations, you can come and have a look.
I would like to comment on Xin'anjiang, but I haven't found the right place. Let's comment here. This is a place where you can only experience extraordinary pleasure in summer. Because in summer, Xin'anjiang will be foggy on the river, just like a fairyland. It can be foggy by the river or drifting in a dragon boat in the foggy river. It's absolutely an experience you can't enjoy anywhere else. Of course, Xin'anjiang Hydropower Station, as a well-known water conservancy project in China, is also worth visiting. Qiandao Lake was formed because of Xin'anjiang Hydropower Station. On the dam of the hydropower station, the downstream Qiandao Lake can be seen. I highly recommend traveling to Jiande, but it must be summer.
Today, driving to Xin'anjiang Hydropower Station, which has long been admired since childhood, the mood is still surging. For the first time in 55 years since the station was built, I was so close to it that the strong wind of the dam depended on it. It gave people an indescribable shock. Entering the dam, the generators are arranged there in order to benefit the people silently. Upon the top of the dam, I saw the spillway gate standing there like a copper wall and iron wall, controlling the water potential. The spillway waited quietly for orders. The completion of the dam has turned one side into a beautiful Qiandao Lake and the other into a poetic and picturesque river, just like a green ribbon shaking eastward. Xin'anjiang Hydropower Station is the first large-scale hydropower station designed, equipped and built independently in China. I am proud of our Chinese feat, which continues to benefit mankind today. I am proud of being Chinese!
The great construction projects in the early days of the founding of the People's Republic are all projects designed, constructed and manufactured by themselves, which are worth visiting. If you have a chance, you must get up in the morning and go to the edge of Xin'an River to see the morning fog on the river (because the upstream water comes out from 70 meters below the dam and the temperature is lower than below).
It's already 4:30 after the cruise ship ride from Qiandao Lake, without taking the highway, and the sightseeing along the National Highway has arrived here. I bought tickets in a hurry and caught up with the last group of tourists to visit the dam. Although the time was short, it was still shocking. It was a great generation to build such a magnificent project in those days.
Xin'anjiang Hydropower Station was built in April 1957. It is the first large-scale hydroelectric power station designed and built by China itself after the founding of the People's Republic of China. Located in Tongguan Canyon, 6 kilometers west of Xin'anjiang Town, Jiande City, Hangzhou, the river runs eastward like a huge natural air conditioner, bringing a unique microclimate to the town, making Xin'anjiang a famous tourist and leisure resort. In the morning, enjoy the beautiful scenery of Xin'an River!
This is the nearest scenic spot to my home, the Xin'an River in Jiande, Hangzhou. It is a unique river. There is still white fog in summer evening, and the scenery is wonderful. When the dam was built before, my grandfather also participated in it. As Jiande people, you are welcome to experience the mountains and rivers of Jiande, and these pictures were taken by myself.
This scenic spot is very good, the project is very magnificent, it is worth seeing, especially the Qiandao Lake in the reservoir area, compared with the Qiandao Lake scenic spot, there is another scene, the water and the sky are really the same. Regrettably, is it the dam relief season?
