CHINA on Tuesday says its first electricity room for the newly-built Olympic venues at China’s National Alpine Skiing Centre is now operational, according to the National State Grid electricity firm.
A series of test competitions will be held at the Centre from February 2020, in advance of the Beijing Winter Olympic Games in 2022.
Located on the Xiaohaituo Mountain in Yanqing District, some 90 kilometres North-West of downtown Beijing, the National Alpine Skiing Centre was a newly-built competition venue.
However, to ensure reliable power supply during the Olympics, the venue comprises five dividing rooms, eight distribution rooms, and 113 kilometres of cable, as well as requiring 20 kilometres of snow track excavation. (Xinhua/NAN)
