The main structure of the Datengxia water resources management facility in Southwest China has been completed four months ahead of schedule, the Ministry of Water Resources said on Saturday.

The project, which is located in the Xijiang River, a tributary of the Pearl River, has eight power generation units, each with an installed capacity of 200,000 kilowatts. It can annually generate more than 6 billion kilowatt hours of electricity.

The ministry said the project is also expected to contribute to flood control, navigation, water resources allocation, and irrigation in the Pearl River Basin.

In cooperation with other reservoirs in the basin, the project can help Wuzhou, a city with a population of over 2.8 million in Guangxi, cope with once-in-a-hundred-year floods. Previously, the city was only able to withstand floods that occur once every 50 years.
