Smart hydropower for China

At 270-meters high, Wudongde Hydropower Station is one of the tallest and most technologically advanced mega hydropower stations in the world. Engineered by CHANGJIANG DESIGN GROUP (CGD), the station takes advantage of cutting-edge technologies to run more efficiently and safely.

With real-time temperature monitoring, low heat cement and an intelligent water flow system, Wudongde is one of the smartest mega hydropower stations in the world. Everything about this hydropower station was built from the ground up to be smart, starting with CDG’s engineering survey and design processes – all handled using the power of the 3DEXPERIENCE platform.

For CDG, the 3DEXPERIENCE platform is central to its goal of transitioning to advanced 3D design and product lifecycle management technologies.

Backed by the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, CDG is embracing a new approach to design – one that is forward looking, considering build, operation and maintenance – and it’s transforming the way it tackles new projects.

“The 3DEXPERIENCE platform is changing our design thinking,” said Min Feng, director of the BIM Center Hydro Junction Department at CDG. “Now, every discipline is involved on the platform, and we’re thinking about designs in parallel. It means that we can complete future jobs faster, more efficiently, to the highest possible quality.”
