This two day meeting brought together international experts in the field of power plant refurbishment and improvement. Many of the major Chinese power generation companies and research organisations participated in the event, including EPPEI, East China Electric Power Design Institute, Shanghai Waigaoqiao No.3 Power Generation Corporation, CPCEP, Northeast Electric Power Design Institute, Shanghai Jiyi Power Plant Equipment Corporation, Tsinghua University, CPECC, Zhejiang Electric Power Design Institute, Guohua Suizhong Power Generation Corporation, and Sichuan Baima CFB Demonstration Power Station.

The programme included a tour of the Waigaoqiao power plant. At 5000 MW, the Waigaoqiao power plant is one of the largest in the world. Two 1000 MW ultra supercritical power generation units were put into commercial operation at Shanghai Waigaoqiao No.3 Power Plant in March and June of 2008 respectively. During the project construction, the owner, Waigaoqiao No. 3 Power Generation Co., Ltd, carried out a large number of optimisations and technological innovations in all aspects of project design, equipment selection, construction, commissioning, startup and operation, etc. This increased the net unit efficiency from an original design value of 42.73% to 45.03%. Further research and development is ongoing.
