Apr 10, 2001, 01:00 ET from Huaneng Power International, Inc.

    BEIJING, April 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Huaneng Power International, Inc. (the
 "Company") (NYSE:   HNP; SEHK: 902) today announced its power generation in the
 first quarter of 2001 and its planned power generation for the whole year of
 2001.
 
     1. Planned Power Generation for the year 2001
     The preliminary planned power generation of the Company for the year 2001
 will be 53.82 billion kWh, an increase of 35.64% from that of 2000.  This
 still represents an increase of 6.73% even excluding the power generation of
 the former Shandong Huaneng's power plants which is 11.47 billion kWh.
     The planned annual power generation of each of the Company's power plants
 in 2001 is, respectively, as follows (in billion kWh):
 
     Dalian               6.2       Shantou Oil-fired               0.2
     Fuzhou               5.8       Dandong                         3.0
     Nantong              6.3       Nanjing                         3.0
     Shangan Phase I      3.75      Dezhou                          6.58
     Shangan Phase II     3.4       Jining (with 75% interest)      1.33
     Shanghai             7.1       Weihai (with 60% interest)      2.58
     Shantou Coal-fired   3.6       Rizhao (with 25.5% interest)    0.98
 
     2. Actual Power Generation in the First Quarter of 2001
     Based on the preliminary statistics, as of March 31, 2001, the Company's
 total power generation for the first quarter was 12.53 billion kWh, an
 increase of 23.33% over the same period of last year, representing
 approximately 23.28% of the planned generation for the year 2001.  The power
 generation at the Company's Jining, Nanjing, Weihai and Shantou Coal-fired
 Power Plants increased significantly.
     The increase in power generation of the Company's power plants in the
 first quarter of 2001 was mainly attributable to the enlarged generation
 capacity after the merger with Shandong Huaneng.
     The main reasons for the power generation decrease of some power plants
 were that the plentiful rainfall during last winter and this spring resulted
 in the increase of hydro-power generation and decrease of coal-fired
 generation in southern China as well as the reduction of power consumed for
 agricultural irrigation in northern China.  In addition, the Company has
 arranged the maintenance of ten units during the New Year and Spring Festival
 when power demand was low.
 
     The power generation of each of the Company's power plants in the first
 quarter of 2001 was, respectively, as follows (in billion kWh):
 
     Dalian              1.36       Shantou Oil-fired              0.05
     Fuzhou              1.11       Dandong                        0.65
     Nantong             1.50       Nanjing                        0.72
     Shangan Phase I     0.82       Dezhou                         1.53
     Shangan Phase II    0.79       Jining (with 75% interest)     0.36
     Shanghai            1.85       Weihai (with 60% interest)     0.64
     Shantou Coal-fired  0.89       Rizhao (with 25.5% interest)   0.26
 
     Huaneng Power International, Inc. develops, constructs, operates and
 manages large thermal power plants in China nationwide.  As the largest
 independent power producer in China, its total generation capacity is
 currently 10,813.5 MW.
