5G technology in the maintenance of converter station in Xinjiang

A converter station on an ultra-high-voltage direct current transmission line transmitting electricity from Xinjiang to Anhui in east China has started maintenance.

During the 13-day maintenance, 5G technologies will be used to ensure the smooth workflow of the electricity transmission project.

Xinjiang is rich in clean energy including wind and solar power. Since 2010, the region has transmitted over 300 billion kWh of electricity to other parts of China through four channels, playing an important role in cutting emissions in many parts of the country.
