2020-04-08 09:53:42


Yichang is the important location of national strategic facilities such as the Three Gorges Dam and Gezhou Dam, and is known as "the capital of hydropower in the world." In January 2002, Weite was established in Yichang. In August 2002, Weite's first product was used in hydropower stations. Over the past 18 years, the hydropower business has been intensively cultivated as the main position of Weite. At present, the business has covered most large and medium-sized hydropower stations in the country. Today, I will take you to count the top ten hydropower stations in China. Are they all related to Weite?
