China Three Gorges Corporation was founded in 1993 to develop and build the hydroelectric power plant on the Yangtze River. The facility built was the Three Gorges Dam, which is the largest dam ever built. Following the success of that project the company expanded into multiple areas of development, construction, and asset management.
China Three Gorges Corporation employs over eleven thousand employees and has 11 subsidiaries. They range from electricity generation, renewable energy generation, solar and wind power plants, construction, engineering, and financial companies. The company is not only the largest utility in China but also one of the world’s largest companies.
